Satellite Model for Children

Postby Ted » Sun Oct 27, 2013 9:37 am

One can interest primary school children by providing them with materials to construct a model of the FUNcube-1 satellite. It is not easy for a ten year old child to construct a box 4x4x4 inches. This problem is easily solved by purchasing cardboard packaging boxes. These can be bought for as little as £2.97 for 10 and £11.45 for 50, e.g. http://www.globepackaging.co.uk.

Hi Ted,

We are working on a cardboard model that will allow you to print out the parts on A4 paper.
You can either use photo paper, thick card stock, or glue regular paper on top of a cardboard cube.

The model does not have any antennas, but you can use your imagination to fit these ;)

Hi PA3WEG,

The more models we have to choose from the better, as children of many different age groups and skills will want to construct models.

Kind regards,
Ted (G3YWA)

Hi Ted,
Yes, constructing an accutate square 4x4x4 box is not easy. I attached a couple of articles I produced a couple of years ago, and which were published in Oscar News.

Versions 1 and 2 of the model require the gluing a six polystyrene squares (which I obtained quite cheaply from a supplier, and arrived accurately cut. One set cost a few pounds)

Version 3 and 4, although not totally accurate, do give an idea of the size (one is 9 cms and the other 11 cms). The nice thing about the 11 cms version, is that it rotates!

If you want the graphics for any of these, let ,me know and I'll try and dig tjhem out and post them here!

Hi Ted,

The cardboard model that I was referring to can be found at
It is work in progress, but might eventually be published on the FUNcube website.
