2018 Space Summer School – Science & Technology

Another summer begins and so does Summer Schools’ time! Once again we are in charge of designing, preparing, and coordinating all the activities for ESA‘s ESAC‘s annual Space Summer School. Over a hundred kids come to this daycamp every year looking up for fun and friends, but also hoping they will learn awesome new facts about space science and build some useful space-technology skills. Not to disappoint them, we must make a big effort and win a race against time creating devices, writing software and designing new activities for them. But with the latest technology at the service of education and scientific dissemination; and our professional team of physics, engineers, programmers, and educators; success is guaranteed.

We carry out many activities every day and by the end of the month we have accomplished more than a handful of them, so it would be preposterous to describe them all here. But we have intended to make a representative abstract of our achievements in the following lines.

2020 ExoMars’ Rover, the final design.

ExoMars 2020 won’t be launched until… guess it… 2020, but missions are always designed years before the launching date, so ExoMars’ 2020 Rover’s final design has already been presented. Although we already had figures from previous sketches, we rushed on to create the first available scaled model of the rover’s latest and final design. read more…

Satellite Building Game

 

How cool would it be for students in schools or universities to learn about the space industry by building their own satellite? Although satellites are much cheaper now and some schools and universities do launch CubeSats once in a while, this is still unaffordable for most of the centers. And even if money is not a problem, time may be, as designing and building a satellite, however small it may be, requires a lot of time. Nevertheless, we found a solution for students to learn about the space industry while having fun designing and building their own affordable satellites in just a few hours.
