Hands-on CubeSat Workshop

In celebration of UN World Space Week 2017, we are happy to announce a unique hands-on opportunity to assemble and code mini-satellites known as “CubeSats.”

The workshop is held on 7 October, at the Singapore Science Centre.

It is accessible and understandable if you’re a university student or professional, regardless of technical background.

We will work with you to get your system up and running. You don’t have to be an expert programmer, but you do need a general sense of how programming works. Just ask us at info@bse-space.com if you’re not sure.
