Why learn this course?
There is an increase in enthusiasm for space science. Rockets, Astronomy, Stars, black hole are the words you hear when you find kids having a conversation. After the cold war, the Satellite race slowed down. Thanks to the enthusiasm shown by private players like SpaceX and successful missions by ISRO and other government space agencies, the excitement is back. With big aspiration for a manned mission to moon and mars, the need for kids to get exposed to space technology is quite essential.
In the two days summer camp, kids build their own CAN satellite, understand the basics of electronics and circuitry. More importantly, the need for capturing data through sensors. This, of course, would involve learning more about different satellites, different types of orbits and working principle of satellites. Kids with interest in robotics, space science, physics and astronomy would enjoy the satellite building camp here at Coimbatore
NOTE: Kids have to bring their own laptop and mouse
