Two Romanian Teams selected in the 2014 European CanSat Competition

on 17 December 2013

Last October, ESA’s Education Office, in collaboration with the Norwegian Centre for Space-related Education (NAROM), invited high school students to enter the 2014 European CanSat Competition.
The National College of Computer Science from Piatra Neamt and The Carmen Sylva High School from Eforie Sud, Romania, have been selected to take part in the launch campaign, which will be hosted at the Andøya Rocket Range in Norway, 1-5 June 2014.

The two winning Romanian teams proposals were Ro-Sat One, a CanSat which will obtain data during descent and after landing with a rover and Carmen Sylva 1, a CanSat which will study the atmosphere and magnetic field, and attempt a controlled landing.
Each team comprises between 4 and 10 high school students aged 16 years or over, assisted by a teacher or tutor. The teachers of the chosen teams will attend an introductory workshop led by NAROM. The teachers’ workshop will take place 24-25 January 2014 at ESA’s Space Technology Centre (ESTEC) in The Netherlands.

Congratulations to the Romanian winners!
