Success at the CANSAT UK Regional Launch

Yesterday Dr Ricks and Mr Davies took two physics teams, named “CanSat Chargers” and “Floor It” to a regional launch campaign, of the CANSAT 2024 UK LAUNCH, during which they were able to launch their CanSats in small rockets to test them. The CanSat is a simulation satellite the size of a drinks can which the students design and make in order to complete two missions. The primary mission was to record and send temperature and pressure data during the descent. Both teams had successful landings and recovery of their CanSats and one team was able to receive data from their satellite. This is an incredible achievement for two first year teams. Well done to all.
