The goal of the Ada project is to contribute in increasing the number of
female engineers educated at the Faculty of Information Technology,
Mathematics and Electrical Engineering. Part of the project is creating a
positive environment for girls studying at the faculty by arranging
educational and social activities. Creating a satellite is a large and
complicated task, and even if the students currently working on the
project, like to think of it as their satellite, there is need for new
students to get involved. The chance of presenting the project for
people from the whole faculty was definitely not to be missed.
before have so many girls found their way to the Roof lab, but we
managed to squeze everyone in, and thankfully a vast number of pizzas
arrived after the presentations. Roger and Sigvald demonstrated how the
ground station works, and the rest of the team were available for
questions and discussion. Hopefully, the presentations gave the
participants an interest for space technology and satellites!
