McMaster Interdisciplinary Satellite Team
The McMaster Interdisciplinary Satellite Team is a group of McMaster University students that is currently designing, fabricating, and planning to launch a small satellite (CubeSat) into low earth orbit in order to study the effects of ionizing radiation on the human body. A project of this magnitude offers a brand new learning opportunity as this newly developed project will give students an opportunity to enhance their academic experiences through experiential learning. The students on this team are actively participating in every step of the process, from designing, modelling and launching, and this will truly be an enriching educational experience. MIST will provide students with an enhanced learning opportunity and a unique skillset that will supplement the academic fundamentals provided through their education at McMaster University.
