CanSat Limerick Finals 2015

CanSat 2015 (Limerick Institute of Technology) from Engineering LIT on Vimeo.

I recently had the opportunity to serve as a mentor to local secondary schools through the CanSat program. The competition offers secondary school students a unique opportunity to participate in a real space project by building a CanSat – a simulation of a satellite which fits into the volume of a soft drinks can.

CanSat is a joint collaboration between ESERO Ireland (European Space Education Resource Office) and Cork Electronics Industry Association (, and is co-funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) and Science Foundation Ireland Discover Programme. The Limerick regional final was held by Limerick Institute of Technology.
