Educational mission and test the efficiency of using capacitors in place of batteries.


Educational mission to establish a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) program featuring a hands-on, research-focused approach, to foster student’s natural curiosity and to facilitate excellence via individual and team competitions. CapSat will measure capacitance and the discharge rate of capacitors as a function of time to test the efficiency of using capacitors as an electrical power system in place of lithium-ion batteries.
