STMC’s CanSat team has been featured on Global News! The team of three Grade 12s (Ethan R., Ryan R., and Philip S.) and two grade 11s (Victor C., and Mike W.) along with Science teacher Mr. Joe Muise are currently in Italy for the European Space Agency’s (ESA) CanSat competition. They will be competing against 19 other countries in building a probe that will be rocket-propelled 1km into the atmosphere where data on pressure and temperature will then be collected.
A secondary objective our Knights have chosen is to have the probe collect images to build a topographical map of the area simultaneously. This team of exemplary Knights are also the first Canadian representatives to be part of the competition.
