The selection of the teams competing in the 2013 European CanSat Competition is now concluded. This competition is organised by the European Space Agency (ESA).
The highlight will be the Competition Launch Campaign, scheduled to take place in the second half of 2013 in The Netherlands. Further information about the dates, location and partners will be published before the proposal deadline.
A teachers’ introductory workshop took place at ESA-ESTEC on 7-8 December 2012, to ensure that the teachers of selected teams have the necessary equipment and expertise to proceed with their CanSat project.
Between December 2012 and April 2013, the selected teams will carry out technical work on their CanSats, including design, development and testing activities. Guidelines, templates and expert advice will be available throughout this phase.
At the competition launch campaign, CanSats will be launched in rockets up to an altitude of 1 km. The CanSats will then separate from the rocket, conduct their missions, and land safely on the ground to be recovered by the teams.
The competition winners will be chosen based on the team’s performance throughout the project, as well as the final flight operations and results.
