The CanSat Leader Training Program (CLTP) will enable me to have an experience for the entire cycle of CanSat development from design to launch. I will learn the space technology and teaching methods utilized in CanSat. I will have important skills such as system analysis and design, implementing fault tolerance, assembly/integration/test, and project management. Having completed CLTP, I will become a qualified teacher and leader of CanSat training. I will teach the CanSat to students at the new faculty of Aeronautics and Astronautics at AKU and interested students of the other faculties. I am a member of UTEB (Space Technology and Education Union) of Turkey, which organized the CanSat training programs last year. Therefore I will also teach the program at national level in such an organization of UTEB in future.
It was a great experience, and beyond my expectations. The CanSat Leader Training Program (CLTP) enabled me to have an experience for the entire cycle of CanSat development and teaching methods.
I strongly recommend participation in future CLTPs. You would enjoy and have fun.
