Caterpillar/STEM Learning Enthuse Project

11 June 2024

On Friday 7 June, Hampton Gardens proudly hosted four schools in the finals of the Caterpillar/ Stem Learning Enthuse project. This was a 12 week after school project, where the students were given the challenge of designing, building and testing an electronically controlled paper rocket launcher. Their launcher was built from scratch, starting with just a plastic container, spools of wires and a microbit, the students designed their launch control box and had hands on experience building electronic circuits, creating and developing software, and developing their rocket designs. The final was held on Friday, with the judges looking for accuracy of their rockets, neatness of the internal wiring and the presentations of the project given by each group. Unfortunately Mercury, the Hampton Gardens team, despite many successful launches did not win the competition, but a great day was had by all.

Thank you again to Team Mercury: Fan, Nina, Holly, Dylan and Jonah!
