 “Planet Watch: Space Experiments”: Skoltech Space Center to host online meetings with school students

The Skoltech Space Center (SSC) is pleased to announce a series of five online sessions for school students, “Planet Watch: Space Experiments”, based around small satellites. Skoltech attaches particular importance to the popularization of science and space by regularly involving school students in innovative research and development projects. During the upcoming sessions, SSC and Planet Watch experts will guide school students in developing ideas for cubesat-based experiments and science-and-education missions.

Steered by SSC and its main partners, the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE) and Planet Watch, the online sessions aim to establish a program of cubesat-based science-and-education experiments and create a student task force.

The online sessions will be held in an open discussion format to connect school students and experts in small spacecraft, private astronautics, and aerospace education.

The event will start with a review of international cubesat markets and Russia’ leading small satellite projects and go on to identify the students’ interests and tasks in the cubesat experiments.

8th to 11th graders who took part in previous Planet Watch events or are beginners in space education are welcome to attend.

Planet Watch partners and members and leading Russian experts in small spacecraft have been invited to the discussions.

For all matters regarding participation, please contact Antonina Gromyko, a project coordinator at SSC (, 89039621761). To join the student task force, please send your request before August 10, 2020.

The event starts on August 20, 2020. Join the school student community on Telegram:
