NSBE-BWSI Build a CubeSat Challenge 

Join the NSBE-BWSI Challenge focused on building a CubeSat. Students work together and compete to develop their own 1U CubeSat to complete an ocean science research mission. Teams of roughly five students work together to develop satellite subsystems that can power and support an optical payload while analyzing data and wireless transmitting the results to a ground station.
