The objective of the Cansat competition, which is part of the “From Space to the Classroom” procedure promoted by the Science Park ESERO office, is to Building a satellite the size of a soda can, including all the necessary subsystems to collect data, transmit information, and achieve a safe landing. The challenge for the students was to present the main subsystems of a real satellite, such as the power supply, sensors, and communication system, in such a small space. In the regional final, the satellites built through missiles and drones were launched to accomplish their mission and show the results obtained.
