Out of this world
Budding Year 5 scientists from Our Lady of the Rosary School Caloundra were hard at work earlier this month helping save humankind from a hypothetical asteroid collision with the moon.
Using the Makers Empire design and print app to create nine 3D printed life support systems, the students took out the Queensland finals of the Andy Thomas Space Foundation Kids in Space challenge, powered by the Australian Space Agency at Griffith University on the Gold Coast.
“I am truly blown away by how our students passionately shared their learning and showcased their ideas,” principal Michael Stewart said.
As part of their win, the Our Lady of the Rosary School team will attend the Australian Space Discovery Centre in Adelaide in October to represent Queensland with their innovative inventions.
