CanSat Resources

Several tutorials and videos have been produced to support CanSat teams

Each resource contains a teacher guide and accompanying student worksheets. Students can explore technology used in Space through the Raspberry computer, become familiar with the main components of a CanSat for completing the Primary Mission, and understand how radio waves are used to transmit information for both everyday devices and a CanSat. Students will also learn how to design the parachute for their CanSat and how the basic laws of Physics apply during a CanSat’s descent.
