RSC Energia teams are in the final of the CanSat project in Russia

February 5, 2018

The Winter session of project Air-Engineering School (CanSat in Russia) was closed in the RSC Energia museum. Participants and curators received certificates and the best teams – a pass to the final.

The main goal of the Air-Engineering School (CanSat) project is the development of aerospace education in our country. Teams from all over Russia take part in it – a total of 230 persons. During the Winter session schoolchildren and students defended their space developments and got a possibility to implement them. The strongest teams will take part in the final of the project this summer, among which are 4 teams of RSC Energia.

The youth educational project called Air-Engineering School is based on NASA program CanSat (satellite in the can) having international fame. Within the framework of these competitions schoolchildren design “satellites” which under the conditions shall be placed in a tin can with a volume of 0.5 l. Such an apparatus delivered to a height of 1-2 km, shall, when descending, implement its unique scientific program.

The RSC Energia teams such as Unica, Granum, M3 and Gravitsapa participate in the project for several years and show the best results. Work on creating and launching atmospheric satellite-probes is supported by curators-instructors – staff of RSC Energia. Under the guidance of young specialists of the Corporation, schoolchildren are involved in actual creative work, beginning already with high school. This year the CanSat – Junior team joined the project, which included schoolchildren of 6-8 classes.

Project Air-Engineering School (CanSat in Russia) is already 7 years old. During this time about 5,000 schoolchildren took part in this project; most of these schoolchildren have already entered higher technical educational institutions and upon graduation from them they will come to work in the rocket-space industry.

Last year the RSC Energia teams participation in the final of VI Championship deserved considerable attention. Of 23 places in the Regular league the first place was awarded to the Granum team, the second – to M3, the 7th and 8th places were awarded to such teams as Gravitsapa and Unica. And the guys from the Unica team were decorated with special diploma For success in mathematical simulation. In the new season 2017-2018 all four teams will be presented in the final of the CanSat Championship.
