  • The best way to get involved is to start coming to shop hours in AERB 023. These are Thursdays 12-3pm each week, and is a time when there is guaranteed to be somebody in the lab working away. Come and have your questions answered, tinker with hardware, learn new things, and make progress on your satellite components!
  • If you can't make it to shop hours, send us an email at and we'll be more than happy to find a time when we can meet you and get the ball rolling.
