CubeSat STEM Satellite Program
The high school space race is on! Beckman High School will join with the four other Irvine high schools to work on becoming the first high school group to successfully launch a CubeSAT into orbit. The five high schools are joining forces with industry partners and experts to assemble, test, and launch a CubeSat (nano-satellite) into low Earth orbit. Each high school team has a focus area and Beckman has been assigned avionics.
A CubeSat is a type of miniaturized satellite intended for space research that performs a number of scientific research functions that will be conducted by our students. Avionics are the electronic systems of the satellite including the writing of software that control the functions.
