Learn about an NSF-funded project conducted by the Lawrence Hall of Science. Over a 3-year period, middle and high school students have been engaged in activities that involve programming Arduino-based sensors to collect data in and around the classroom, and from nanosatellites in low-earth orbit. Study sites include a science classroom, an after-school program, and a summer camp. Researchers were interested in whether access to a nanosatellite increased interest in science and/or coding.
