The Pocket Rockets are a team of year 7 and 9 female students from the Westport Campus showing us that Engineering is not just for males.
Our team: Vianne Batchelor, Shaynae Murray, Natalie Barratt, Kensi Coad and Jorja Schofield are investigating and developing a prototype to collect space junk and recycle the material for further use.
The team has reached out and have been successful in gaining two great mentors Anne-Marie Lane (Aeronautical Engineer) and Erin Madden (Aerospace Engineer) from Nova Systems based in Canberra. Nova Systems is a private company and was initially called Nova Aerospace Pty Ltd. Nova Systems operates in the Defence, Energy, Utilities, Communications and Transportation markets http://novasystems.com/.
FIRST® LEGO® League is a competition catering for upper-primary and lower-secondary school students. If you wish to come and support our students, the Regional competition will be held at Toormina High School, Armstrong Rd, Toormina.
We wish our students and all our local primary schools the best of luck in the upcoming competition in Coffs Harbour on the 20th of November.
