Description

Mentoring secondary school pupils for the CanSat competition

Mentored 2 pupils from Kings Park for the CanSat competition. Final outcome from regional finals: Outcome in student's words: “Last Wednesday we went to Strathaven airfield where the cansat was dropped from the height of 2000ft. We had problems with our reciever but nevertheless managed to get a decent set of results. Then yesterday we attended the final at the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh. The presentation went well and the teachers were all very happy with the performance. However, we came 2nd place, losing out to Bearsden Academy by only a matter of marks. We are proud of what we have achieved but ultimately disappointed we came so close.”
