The second mission is to reach out to high schools in the area to design and operate devices in orbit. This will train students in radio communications and encourage STEM. All of the schools involved in this project will have students obtain an FCC license. As they design the satellite, they have obtained skill to design and operate radio device place in orbit. This mission is in full Compliance with the FCC rules 97.1 (c) Encouragement and improvement of the amateur service through rules which provide for advancing skills in both the communication and technical phases of the art.
