Students will be able to share their knowledge and “enhance public understanding of, and participation in, the Nation’s space program”* through the use of a social media platform by:
- Posting of project information on SilverSat website.
- Sharing of project updates and developments.
- Having CubeSat take and post pictures from space.
Through outreach to Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), SilverSat and its student members will offer assistance to MCPS’s STEM curriculum.
MCPS 5th-grade curriculum includes a CubeSat unit.
This helps create a “sustainable program”* that can be used to continue our overarching mission past the time we complete our CubeSat, enabling future generations to learn about technology and space.
