The Association of Space Explorers and Ardusat are recruiting teams who want to provide their students with the ultimate learning experience by allowing them to run a real experiment on a real satellite orbiting Earth!
Students, tell your teachers about this!
Here’s what previous teachers and mentors have said:
“It is causing the students ‘to look upward’. Thanks for allowing us to participate!!!”
“I was really pleased by the spirit of adventure my students displayed throughout this process.”
“The project didn’t just teach them how to design an experiment, it gave them the skills to be successful both in their careers and in their lives.”
“This has been, and will be, an extremely rich experience for my students.”

Check Out These Sample Experiment Ideas to Get Your Creativity Started!
Can you use light data to track the satellite as it moves in and out of earth’s shadow?
Can you see the blue of oceans verse the green of tropical forest? Can you map a portion of earth one color pixel at a time?
How does surface temperature correlate with infrared reading from space? Can you detect cloud cover over areas of earth? What would you expect to see when taking infrared readings on the windward and leeward side of Mt. Everest?
Does the satellite’s magnetometer readings correlate with NOAA’s geomagnetic models?
