Rocket Wonder Project Mission #1 and #2


Homai School!

The Rocket Challenge is a 4-6 weeks unit of work exploring the real-world context of rockets.  It is part of the Wonder Project, which is Engineering New Zealand's schools programme.  It is created especially to get young Kiwis excited about science, technology, engineering and maths. 

The Rocket Challenge is led by the teacher and the students, and supported by Engineering New Zealand's industry ambassadors.  The ambassadors have worked with Engineering NZ before, and they come from a range of different fields - from scientists to rocket designers to bridge builders.

Meeting our Ambassadors -
Havea, Dietrich and Isaac
As part of the challenge, these ambassadors will mentor the students (and the teacher), and work with the students to design, build and test the rockets.  

Our first mission was to come up with a cool crew name and research all the different roles in a rocket career and what people in those roles do and what subjects they might have taken to get there.
