CanSat Starter is an exciting introduction to building your first satellite! Best of all, no prior knowledge is necessary and all you need is a computer.
Students are taken through the process of building a simple circuit to measure air temperature – one of the primary missions needed to complete the main CanSat challenge. CanSat Starter offers the opportunity to learn how to wire a temperature sensor, breadboard and Arduino together using a free piece of free software called Tinkercad Circuits.
