Hero and Project Description: 

Bawden’s innovative teaching idea, “CubeSat Mission,” focuses on experimentation at the forefront of space technology. Students involved in the project will design a micro-satellite that will be launched annually into space and then recovered from one a local commercial launch rockets. The project will be conducted as an entrepreneurial enterprise where students will be able to work in teams on all facets of design, manufacturing, procurement, media, marketing, and finance. With the support of the Voya grant, Bawden will be able to witness the intersection of knowledge from the students “flight and space” class along with core math and science courses as students employ algebra and geometry in their design calculations.
