Magnitude.io introduced Cansat program at California STEM Symposium 2014

We spent the last 2 days with about 3000 educators at the California STEM Symposium in San Diego. The common goal to inspire students to go into Science, Technology, Engineering and Math is evident. We were excited to introduce our Cansat program and our partnership with Intel in such a great venue. Super thanks to Sunny Washington (CEO) and Tiffany Powell of Ardusat came all the way out from Utah to present Ardusat program and the ASE Space Explorer Challenge at the conference. We also debuted the MultiLab of Space Tango, today students and scientists now have a chance to run their biological experiments on International Space Station (ISS) in micro-gravity at a much lower cost. The feedback from all the teachers and administrators are WOW, this is very cool, let’s work together to get these into the classrooms and let’s find the funds to make it happen. Some said I want to be a kid again!
