Workshops Launching CubeSats in Peru
One Voice 4 Change is hosting eight back-to-back workshops, taking place every Tuesday and Thursday in February. All workshops will run from 4:00 - 5:00 Peruvian Time. (2:00 pm MST) These sessions will help teams go from basic awareness to advanced systems and subsystems, eventually allowing everyone to start thinking about "What If?" As John Moore always says: "CubeSats can be used to teach anything." Check out this great YouTube from John and his students who designed the A³SAT. https://youtu.be/duRXNO4H65o

During Phase I of the collaboration (March 2 - May 2, 2023) teams will build the A³SAT CubeSats with advice from mentors in our US network, co-mentoring with experts from Peru. Teams will be reporting their progress during weekly virtual meetings. In addition to the interest Peruvian teams have for hands-on experiential learning using CubeSats, a few teams from DSST Public Schools Montview HS and Wheat Ridge HS in Colorado are also building A³SAT CubeSats. Our hope is that all teams will help each other, fostering global citizenship and the kind of collaborative spirit that helps every student in every country. We feel blessed to have great support from multiple aerospace companies in Colorado. The Jefferson Michaelis Foundation has invited OV4C to present this learning adventure to three cities in Brazil in March, 2023 as part of Science Days. https://youtu.be/33-ZyXC8pAM The purpose of this program is to provide K-12 students, educators and their communities the opportunity to experience interactive STEM and space science content reflective of International science through a unique collaboration of community and nontraditional partners that include both social and professional organizations. Furthermore, Science Days inspires students to pursue disciplines in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Special thanks for the support of the U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Embassy and U.S. Consulates in Brazil, Brazil Florida Chamber of Commerce, KSCIA, Vaya Space and The Michaelis Foundation for Global Education.
