Teachers, how would you like to learn how to build an Arduino based miniature satellite with your students and launch it to the upper atmosphere and into space?
Find out how by attending the Teachers in Space Professional Development Workshop at the Challenger Learning Center of Las Cruces, in partnership with the New Mexico Space Grant Consortium and the National Space Grant College & Fellowship Program.
The Flight Experiments & CubeSat Professional Development Workshop for Teachers will be held at the Challenger Learning Center of Las Cruces (505 S Main St, Las Cruces, NM 88001) on June 27, 2022 – July 1, 2022, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Registration cost is $500 for all NM educators and $1,700 for out-of-state educators. Breakfast is included. You must bring your own Windows PC, Apple computers and Chromebooks will not work.
In this workshop, Teachers in Space will cover programming Arduino microcontrollers, setting up various sensors, integrating into a CubeSat form-factor, and collecting in-flight data from fixed wing and high altitude balloon flights. Teachers will be sent home with all the equipment, materials, and knowhow to build a working CubeSat with their students. Teachers in Space will work with teachers to develop an experiment that we will then be able to launch on a suborbital flight with Blue Origin.
