Auckland University Engineering ChallengeOn Saturday a group of our top Physics students took part in the annual Auckland University Engineering Challenge. This was also used as an opportunity for all of our IB students to complete their Group 4 project where students from a range of subjects collaborate to solve a given problem and present their findings. This year's question was:
"How many satellites can be launched into orbit before Astronomers on Earth can no longer observe the night sky without interruption?"
It was an extremely challenging question which relied on students making a number of assumptions based on the research material they gathered. All groups managed to reach a final answer and submit their final report with supporting justifications and calculations before the 6.00pm deadline and are to be congratulated on the way they worked together throughout the day.
