Another educational program will leverage EnduroSat’s Shared Satellite Service to deliver advanced learning opportunities to students
WhiteHat Jr, a leading EdTech company known for delivering 1:1 live online classes in Coding & Math, has entered into a multi-year partnership with EnduroSat, a leading space company. The contract entails a satellite launch in December 2021, which will have a payload dedicated to WhiteHat Jr that provides its students with exciting learning opportunities related to space. In addition, WhiteHat Jr students will also have access to another satellite on a trial basis scheduled for launch in June 2021. Both satellites will leverage the SpaceX Falcon 9 rideshare.
The unique collaboration between WhiteHat Jr and EnduroSat will create fascinating applied science opportunities for students who will be able to send commands to, and access data from a satellite operating in space. From analyzing sensor data (there are 30+ sensors onboard each satellite, including infrared, temperature, sun sensor, gyroscope, etc.) to controlling cameras (taking pictures of various space objects), to relaying messages to and fro, the advanced learning opportunities that students would get are endless.
Moreover, students would be able to participate in different ways of orchestrating space data on WhiteHat Jr’s payload computer (a Raspberry Pi 4 with a direct link to the main onboard computer). All of these learning experiences would be seamlessly integrated with WhiteHat Jr’s curriculum and would follow a gamified content aimed to ensure maximum student engagement.
We have always believed in the power of creation through exploration. This partnership is a testament to our mission of enabling kids to think beyond the obvious and aim for the stars, quite literally. We are absolutely thrilled to offer this unique learning opportunity to our students, and we are in the process of involving multiple strategic and corporate partners to popularize it globally.
– Mr. Karan Bajaj, Founder & CEO at WhiteHat Jr.
We are really excited to host an educational partner as part of our Shared Satellite Service. EnduroSat has long advocated for space education to be democratized and made available to everyone through our own Spaceport Academy. We hope that this space mission will inspire a new generation of space enthusiasts and are excited at the prospect of sharing it with thousands of kids!
