Students from Crescent College Comprehensive in Limerick City travelled to Norway to launch their cansats on suborbital rockets. CanSats are mini-satellites small enough to fit inside a soft drink can. The students, who beat a field of five other schools to represent Ireland, designed their cansat to measure temperature, air pressure, water vapor, and Earth’s magnetic field during its descent. The European Space Agency organizes the CanSat Competition to encourage secondary school student participation in science and engineering.
