What’s small, cube-shaped and hangs 60 miles above your house? CubeSats are tiny satellites that do amazing things. Bring the whole family along to help Muza and Mikey as they try to get some off the ground.
In this first session they meet characters from around the world, who all want to send things into apace – inside small cubes made in Scotland. Then you and your family can make your own model satellite at home using a posted CubeSat kit, to show the group in a follow-up session.
The best one wins a prize, judged by a real satellite-maker from AAC Clyde Space .
For ages 8 – 12 and their families. Young people must be joined by a parent or other adult for the full duration of the sessions.
Numbers are limited to 10 families, and booking is essential, £2 per family. Make sure to complete your postal address in the booking form so that your CubeSat kit can be sent. Here is the booking link
The Wee Satellite Challenge is produced by the Institute of Physics in Scotland, in partnership with AAC Clyde Space.
