European CanSat Competition - Design your own satellite

European CanSat Competition

Have you ever dreamed of designing your own mini satellite? CanSat is back with the 2020-21 edition of the European CanSat Competition and CADSat - a new entry-level project for beginners! Registration are now open!

The European CanSat Competition, an initiative of the European Space Agency, is aimed at participants from 14 to 19 years old. If you’re up for a bigger challenge, work in a team to imagine, build, test and launch a real mini satellite! This project challenges students to fit all the major subsystems of a satellite inside the volume and shape of a soft drink can, which will be launched by a small rocket up to an altitude of 1 km. As the CanSat descends, its mission begins.
