University of Bridgeport Students Attend CanSat Competition in Texas

University of Bridgeport Students Attend CanSat Competition in Texas

This year, the Consortium awarded Jeffrey Fleurantin with a Project Grant AND a Travel Grant, which he used to bring his team to the 2014 CanSat Competition in Burkett, TX. The CanSat Competition is a student design-build-launch competition provided by the American Astronautical Society (AAS) and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). Students at the competition get to experience the end-to-end life cycle of a complex engineering project, from conceptual design, through integration and testing and actual operation of the system and concluding with a post-mission summary and debrief.

Check out this video, made by Jeffrey and his team: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4aKNbNMsPo
