Crew on board the International Space Station (ISS) will share with students what satellites can be used for. Crew will also explain how these communication devices are launched and carried into space. Students will then be asked to think of other ways to use information gathered from satellites and design their own custom satellite.
Topics covered include developing an awareness of outer space, exploring communication devices and understanding data collection.
