Download Small Spacecraft Development Project-Based Learning: by Jeremy Straub, Ronald Arthur Marsh, David J. Whalen PDF

By Jeremy Straub, Ronald Arthur Marsh, David J. Whalen

This booklet presents the data that's required to begin a small spacecraft software for tutorial reasons. this can comprise a dialogue of a number of techniques to software formation and construct / purchase / hybrid determination issues. The ebook additionally discusses how a CubeSat (or different small spacecraft software) could be built-in into path and/or software curriculum and the ancillary merits that one of these software supplies. The overview of small spacecraft courses and participatory project-based studying courses is usually mentioned broadly. The booklet offers earlier paintings relating to software evaluate (both for a unmarried application and across the world) and discusses how comparable innovations can be used for either formative and summative overview of a brand new application. The application of those metrics (and previous evaluate of different courses) in gaining buy-in for application formation and investment can be considered.
