Abstract

We propose a new educational use of a nanosatellite for high school and junior high school students, and not making a nanosatellite but using it. We held a workshop in which high school and junior high school students made observation plans using Stars-AO, which is a CubeSat equipped with a high-sensitivity visible-light camera. We evaluated the educational effects of the workshop by analyzing the response writings of the students and their replies to questionnaires. The participants' abilities and interest in science and space engineering increased because of the workshop. In this study, we report the workshop details and evaluation of its educational effects.
