We are a team called space-IT and we are going to participate to the CanSat compitition this year. Our team consists out of five sophomore students from the Netherlands.
At our school you can follow an extra schoolsubject called O&O. O&O stands for Research and design, in Dutch: Onderzoek & ontwerpen. You have certain projects where you need to find solutions for. To find solutions you need to do research. After Research you can design something, we often make prototypes in our workplace. This school trimester our project is the CanSat compititon.
Our team consists out of five pupils: Mika, Melissa, Mike, Alyssa and Soraya (me). Everyone has their own tasks in this project. Mika focuses on programming and building the satellite. Melissa focuses on money what makes the project really happen. Mike focuses on the antenna of the satellite. Alyssa focuses on the parachute of the satellite. And Soraya (I) focus on social media, marketing and sponsering.
Together we form a strong team, thats why I think we will get far in the CanSat competition. If you want to know more about CanSat, click HERE. If you want weekly updates of our progress, you can follow our instagram: @space_IT_
