The Student Hands-On Training SHOT I II workshops will provide students beginning the AFRLs University Nanosat 3 program with basic space hardware hands-on and in-flight training. The objective of SHOT I II workshops are to provide these new students exposure to some of the basics of spacecraft construction, the teamwork and coordination involved, as well as the challenges with integration, test and launch of a satellite. Each workshop was completed in three days. Participants traveled to Boulder, Colorado, to receive their hands-on training. Day three was devoted to launch, recovery, and data analysis of their BalloonSat or experiment. During the SHOT I workshop student teams constructed a simple 500 gram satellite called a BalloonSat and launched it to 30 km. The SHOT I workshop training was geared for the novice experimenter but provided a complete program from requirements, design, build, test, launch and analysis. During the SHOT II workshop students brought their own BalloonSats which contained experiments and prototypes that will support their teams University Nanosat 3 mission.
