At Spirit we take great pride in supporting young engineers of the future, and we are very pleased to be sponsoring GWC Cansat from George Watson College in Edinburgh with boards for their exciting CANSAT project.

A CanSat is: “A simulation of a real satellite, integrated within the volume and shape of a soft drink can. The challenge for the students is to fit all the major subsystems found in a satellite, such as power, sensors and a communication system, into this minimal volume. The CanSat is then launched to an altitude of a few hundred meters by a rocket or dropped from a platform or captive balloon and its mission begins: to carry out a scientific experiment and achieve a safe landing.”

We look forward to seeing their progress!
