CUBESAT is part of an educational outreach to middle and high school students to interest them in science and technology careers by engaging them in achievable space oriented projects. Professor Robert Twiggs of Stanford University has challenged several amateur radio groups to design, build and operate CUBESAT picosatellites with the involvement of schools in their communities. This paper is a progress report of one of the groups, the South Bay Amateur Radio Association, which has accepted this challenge.
