MIDAS Ireland sponsoring St Columba's College, Dublin at the CanSat European Finals at Bremen University, Germany from 28 June to 2 July 17

MIDAS Ireland are delighted to be sponsoring St Columba's College, Dublin at the CanSat European Finals at Bremen University, Germany from 28 June to 2 July 2017.

A CanSat is a simulation of a real satellite in the size and shape of a soft drink can. Each team has to fit all the major subsystems found in a satellite to their CanSat including power, sensors and communications – and provide a parachute to ensure the can had a gentle landing.

CanSat is a European Space Agency initiative designed to inspire young people to pursue a career in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and ensure the availability of a highly qualified workforce in the space industry going forward.

In Ireland, the CanSat competition is a joint collaboration between the European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO), Ireland the CEIA and is co-funded by the European Space Agency and Science Foundation Ireland.

There are five regional partners including Athlone Institute of Technology, Cork Institute of Technology, Dublin Institute of Technology, Galway/Mayo Institute of Technology, and Limerick Institute of Technology.
