On Aug 2nd 2019, four engineering students from the Kennesaw State University complete the first ever Scout Aerospace Intern Training program. This 12-week course provided basic instruction on such topics as orbital mechanics, space weather and environment, design for engineering, human factors in manufacturing, and innovation. The course finished with a design report from each student detailing important decision factors for satellite subsystems. The internship program also provide an introduction to the AGI Satellite Tool Kit and Level I STK certification from AGI. These students have a new understanding of the professional aerospace working environment and spacecraft industry.

Scout Aerospace LLC has also received a $10,000 educational grant from the Georgia Space Grant Consortium.
