Yesterday Nev and Rob from CRG gave a presentation to a group of 30 or so Gungahlin college students who are embarking on an applied science based class called 'Rockets - Fact & Fiction'.

The students are studying many facets of rocketry and rocket propulsion - from classic science fiction writing through to the use of contemporary software (OpenRocket) to model the performance of a rocket vehicle of their own design. They are then challenged to build and fly the vehicle themselves. Fantastic tools such as 3D printers (for nose cones) and laser cutters (for fins) are at their disposal - ensuring great quality builds.

The class instructor, Steven Robey, has been working with the CRG for a few years now and this is the second of Steve's rocketry-based science classes.
