Description:

In this activity, students gain an understanding of the decision making process that scientists use when designing a satellite. They will discover that satellite designs are constrained by such issues as weight, cost, materials, and feasibility. As they formulate their own satellite design, they will discover the importance of evenly distributing the weight of various instruments and that certain instrument packages must be grouped together.
