The BLAST team is excited to announce that we will participate in the Science and Engineering Day, hosted by the University of Southampton, on Saturday 16th March, as part of the National Science and Engineering Week. The university aims to inspire interest in these fascinating subjects and demonstrate how exciting they can be.
The event will take place on Highfield Campus from 10.30am to 4.30pm with many exhibitions, interactive displays, shows and talks.
We will be present at Broadlands Car Park, where we are going to show how some of our testing is done with a tethered balloon launch. We will also present project Cansat, a side project lead by Sarah, in collaboration with Itchen College. The can-sat (literally a satellite made from a can) built by the students will be having its maiden flight on the tethered launch platform.
We will also have our own stand in the Exhibition area, where we will have a poster showcasing the work done so far. Outdoor activities will be subject to the weather conditions.
