What is Kemurdzhian Youth Space Challenge?
HyeTech and Bazoomq are launching a nationwide student competition to send a device built and programmed by students all over Armenia into Space.
To rollout a campaign across Armenia and engage children interested in robotics education,
To drive support toward robotics and STEM education in Armenia,
To build a worldwide community of Armenians involved or interested in aerospace and robotics,
To create global awareness and top-tier press coverage about this innovative program happening in Armenia.
Open to youth aged between 12-21, who are residents of the Republic of Armenia,
Teams must consist of a minimum of three to a maximum of five members,
Students from different educational centers (schools, universities, colleges, etc.) can form teams and work together,
Teams can be assisted by experts and/or mentors, subject to terms and conditions listed below,
Payload must strictly adhere to the specifications below.
Payload maximum weight is 200 grams.
Payload should have its own power supply.
Payload must survive being carried by rocket. Total flight to 100-120km+ will take around 10-12 minutes.
Payload must be connected to the rocket radio-telemetry for data transfer.
Payload must survive being in space (100km+) for about two minutes.
Payload will not return.
Competing payloads should pass benchmarking tests like Thermal, Vacuum, G-force and Vibration tests.
More detailed specifications will be provided to participants.
*Teams are supervised and coordinated by Bazoomq Space Research Lab.
