The purpose of this paper is explorning potential for new learning through an ethnographic study in a nanosatellite-developing project generated from among "Nico-TECH:." "Nico-TECH:" is a makers' community spreading like wildfire mainly mediated by NiconicoVideos. "Nico-TECH:" has no institutional organizasion. It is "Social Media Satellite Development Project" (SOMESAT) which is the project for developing a nanosatellite on which "Hachune Miku" (Hatsune Miku) does performance in the space. From the result of the ethnographic study, SOMESAT was able to be taken as a goal-oriented project, and also a zone of human development such as a distributed, mobile and multidirectional pulsation. Activities which realized such a human development were partially mediated by architecture of NiconicoVideos to stimulate emergence of contents and ideas, and by a boundary crossing body of Hatsune Miku's character. This paper must show potential for new learning and give some kind of suggestions about school education in the future.
