SpaceHorizons launched their initiative last week at Roosevelt High School’s Space Day, a day of fun space-oriented activities such as building and launching bottle rockets.
SpaceHorizons’ pilot program for Roosevelt students building CubeSat satellites will be in 7 stages. Each of the 7 stages are broken into modules that follow the school calendar. They are designed to be flexible and easily modified to reflect availability of in-class teacher time, student time and guest presenters and funding.
SpaceHorizons’ 7 Stage STEM Life Cycle:
August 2015: Start of Guest Lecture Series
September 2015: Start Cubesat/Satellite Instruction
October 2015: Start Design Phase
December 2015: Conduct Design Review
January 2016: Start Assembly Phase
March 2016: Conduct Test Readiness Review and Start Test Phase May 2016: Conduct Launch Readiness Review
We can’t wait to see the day our students’ satellites launched into space! For more information on SpaceHorizons and how you can support this great initiative, please visit www.spacehorizons.org (http://www.spacehorizons.org)
