The students are entering the European Space Agency CanSat competition, run by ESRO Ireland in conjunction with CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory and the Institutes of Technology. The SGS CanSat is designed to record GPS, Temperature, Pressure, Humidity and UV Light Orientation. It uses a 1km-range antenna to transmit and receive data.
