On April 13, 14 and 19, a 3-day ARDUINO hackathon was organized in the context of the NANOSTAR Student Challenges at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), thanks to the commitment and relevant contribution of the STARstudents association and specially Miguel González Antohi, UC3M student.
The hackathon goal was to control a 1U cubesat attitude, with the use of a DC motor and an ARDUINO board, thus making a lateral cubesat face point towards a light source. Four teams of 2 students participated in this challenge and their design was evaluated by a jury composed by the NANOSTAR professors Filippo Cichocki and Mario Merino.
