program is designed to give participants an appreciation of the

use their creativity, imagination, and problem-solving and leadership
skills to design their own satellite.
The participants also learn to appreciate the importance of decision-making,
a crucial skill in today's fast-paced world. Each group will employ
these strengths to produce a realistic design, while learning about
science and technology, and making new friends.
participants split up into groups of four to design a satellite,
deciding on its function and choosing the parts it will need. Guided
by a Spacesim member, the participants then choose the parts of
their satellite, taking cost, efficiency, and durability into account.
Next, the group produces a diagram and presents their satellite
to a Board of Directors who decides which satellite is the most
viable to be launched.
will also have the opportunity to explore Spacesim's habitat, the
