UNSW Space Flashbuild at St Clare’s

This Thursday the College will be hosting UNSW’s TechConnect team for a special outreach event as part of the 2018 NewSpace FlashBuild. The FlashBuild is a tightly-curated, 4-day sprint, bringing together experienced teams, tech platforms, engineers, academics, startups, and students, to rapidly prototype and deploy solutions to a range of mission-related challenges.

The outreach event at the College is one of a number the team are running this week in preparation for the launch of two high altitude balloons ascending to 35km altitude from Muswellbrook in NSW. The outreach program is designed to encourage space enthusiasts of the future to get involved in this new frontier.

This will be a great opportunity for the students involved to work side by side with some of the brightest aerospace engineering students from UNSW. Hopefully this will inspire them to get more involved in STEAM related subjects in the years ahead.
