The 2015 European CanSat Competition is organised by the European Space Agency (ESA) in collaboration with Aeroclube Torres Vedras and Ciência Viva - Agência Nacional para a Cultura Científica e Tecnológica Ciencia. The finished CanSats will be launched on a rocket to an altitude of 1 km from the Santa Cruz Air Field, 60 km north of Lisbon, Portugal, on 24-28 June 2015.
The European CanSat competition is part of ESA’s initiative to inspire young people to follow a career in science or engineering, with a view to ensuring the availability of a highly qualified work force in the space industry of the future.
Spaceclub_berlin is one of the 18 secondary school teams that will participate in the 2015 European CanSat Competition.
