This creative workshop will put students' engineering and design skills to the test as they build a protective satellite fairing to save their payload from the dread shake test!

After learning about satellites the students will work in small teams to manage resources, design and build a new novel satellite protection system. Their creation will then be put to the test, as each team's creation is violently shook in our launch simulating shake test, hoping to survive.

Note: Unfortunately this workshop is not available as outreach.

Recommended: Years 3 - 7
