The competition, which is open for all Form 4 and Form 5 Malaysian students (or equivalent) studying in government, international or private schools, will comprise of three stages, as listed below:
Stage 1: Visualizing dream (May 13-20)
Stage 2: Understanding and building a CanSat (May 23-26)
Stage 3: Testing the CanSat (June 11)
Each team should comprise of three students, who would be assisted by a teacher, as they write an abstract (not exceeding 300 words) answering these three points:
- How satellites impact daily life?
- What is their thought about Malaysia's space dream?
- How will they contribute to making the dream come true?
Ten selected groups will be announced on May 22 and all decisions made by the organizers are conclusive.
For the second stage, members of the 10 selected groups will be made to join six online classes, where facilitators will provide them guidance to build a reliable and robust CanSat casing with the proposal of sensors. Also at this stage, the participants will be required to submit a proposal report consisting of Preliminary Design Review (PDR) or Critical Design Review (CDR) of their CanSat.
In the third stage, three selected CanSat will be launched to the stratosphere via a high altitude balloon, and once the CanSat is saved, the data will be retrieved.
Winners of the competition will be announced on June 23, during the Measat-3d satellite launch, and all decisions made by the organizers are conclusive.
Winners of the competition (three students and a teacher) will get to take home four units of Macbook pro 13" 512GB, while the first runners-up will get four units of iPhone 13 128GB. The second runner-ups, meanwhile, will take home four units of iPhone SE 128GB. This on top of the invitation to the Measat-3d satellite launch event, as well as medals and certificates.
