Space sciences introduces the principles, concepts, tools, and techniques necessary to investigate and understand the space environment. Department activities provide hands-on opportunities to learn about space sciences from experts in the field. They will learn how to remotely operate a rover to conduct science missions. They will participate in the development and test of a cubesat. Other activities will concern advances space sensors for astronomy and Earth remote sensing and experiments in microgravity. Through these activities they will build an overall understanding of space sciences with support of department faculty and lecturers. Participants will prepare and present on a subject of particular interest, agreed upon with the departmental team. Entering the exciting world of space sciences does not require a degree in science or engineering; participants from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
