Ardusat is a space-based STEM program. Students assemble CubeSats and send them into orbit while collecting data and completing corresponding online lessons. Both the satellite hardware kits and curriculum are available for purchase.
Students begin using Ardusat by opening their Space Kits and following directions to assemble their satellites, called CubeSats. Space Kits are individual kits that must be ordered. Students can assemble it individually; however, it is most commonly assembled in small groups. Once they have assembled their CubeSats, students use their own model as a way to test code for the real CubeSats in space. Students design experiments and collect data from space while completing simulated experiments, activities, and online assignments using Ardusat’s accompanying curriculum. From their ‘Experiment Platform’ dashboard, students continually collect, analyze, and share data from their CubeSat online, which is connected to the hardware in space.
Individual ‘Space Kits’ cost $150 per kit. An annual license for Experiment Platform costs $5000 per school, annually. Other pricing inquiries can be made on the website.
