CanSats are tiny satellites, built to fit in the same space as a soda-can. UNISEC is running a free* training program in Japan later this year, to train people on how to build and teach building of these ingenious devices

The 2nd CanSat Leader Training Program (CLTP2) will be held
from November 14 to December 14, 2011, at the Department of
Aerospace Engineering, Nihon University, Chiba, Japan. (From
December 10 to 14, the venue will be Kitakyushu
International Conference Center, Japan.) This program is
organized by Nihon University and the University Space
Engineering Consortium (UNISEC).

The deadline for applications to the program is July 11,
2011. No tuition fee is required to participate in the
program. Further, limited funding is available for
participation, including funding for local accommodation,
local transportation, and round-trip air tickets (most
economical, direct flight route) between your home country
and Japan. For further information, including the
application form, program contents, and eligibility, please
visit the following UNISEC website: http://www.unisec.jp/cltp/en/2nd.html

The first CLTP was successfully held in February-March 2011
in Wakayama University, targeting researchers and educators,
with 12 participants from 10 countries, namely, Algeria,
Australia, Egypt, Guatemala, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, Sri
Lanka, Turkey, and Vietnam. http://www.wakayama-u.ac.jp/ifes/cltp/

Mark Note: I would suggest that any senior teachers at secondary schools, wanting to use this for students in their final year, get in contact with UNISEC. They may be willing to open this beyond University researchers for the right person.
