CubeSats: An innovative way of Classroom Based Learning

A CubeSat is a class of miniaturized satellite based around a form factor consisting of 10 cm cube. They are usually used as learning tool in educational institutions and students can develop the whole satellite and can launch it into the space. CubeSat based training equipment can provide a complete learning experience about the all subsystems of satellite. The significance of CubeSats in education lies in their ability to provide hands-on learning opportunities for students in a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields. In addition, CubeSats development is a multidisciplinary approach which provide real-world experience with low cost. SSTRL is developing various CubeSats (ICUBE-CSAT, ICUBE-KidSat) and the developed prototype is constantly improved further to transform into training kits and are now being used for the hands-on experience of students through our various workshop. The lab is also encouraging the active involvement of students in the development of satellites.
