“Emerging Small Satellite Education”

As the world continues to shift its focus towards small satellites to deliver key missions and services, more opportunities are arising for educational programs to leverage small satellite technologies in providing students with exciting, hands-on STEM education. Accordingly, the theme for 2023 SmallSat Education Conference is to highlight these emerging SmallSat education programs around the globe and to share the knowledge and experiences. 

The 2023 SmallSat Education Conference will have the following four tracks. Some sub-topics are listed below as suggestions only and not inclusive descriptors. If you have a story to share, we’d love to hear from you!


Session Topics

Science Missions and Payloads 

Innovative missions and payloads that are under development, on the launch pad, or have flown. Tell us how your payload or mission is advancing the current state of technology.


Example subtopics:                      

  • Astronomical, Biological, Space Weather mission

  • Tech Demonstrations

  • Pre-college Student payloads

  • Other


Advanced Technologies & Techniques

New technologies and development techniques that can benefit the small satellite community. 


Example subtopics:     

  • Subsystem/payload designs

  • Novel testing and modeling methodologies

  • Technology Demonstrations 

  • Other


Systems Engineering and Mission Management

Innovative ways to perform systems engineering and/or mission management. Let’s share how we can manage small satellite programs better, both from professional engineering and also in school programs. 


Example subtopics:
