We are the STEM club and we are endeavouring to create a Mars Rover to be sent into space and to land on Mars. S.T.E.M stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

There are three groups that represent different areas of expertise. The Energy Group is researching different ways of harnessing renewable energies to power the Mars Rover, the Engineering Group constructs the Mars Rover, and the Communications Team updates this blog with news about all the other teams. Every group has a Team Leader and a Co-ordinator.

Energy Team Leader: Justin Yang

Co-ordinator: Robbie Hussain

Team Members: Bilal Ahmed, Beth Mackie, Julia Gill, Jenny Gill, Amy Walker, Alex Bowman, Euan Moffat

Engineering Team Leader: Steven Clark

Co-ordinator: Megan Leroy

Team Members: Francois Husson, Andrew McCroskie, Helen Jephcote, Dougie Whittington, Aidan O’Friel, Gregor McInnes, David Christie

 

 

Zap yourself back next week for more!

  1. Welcome to our first learner bloggers on STEM Central in Motion! This work sounds excellent, interesting, and really challenging. I was lucky enough to meet a NASA Space Systems engineer last June, Amber Gell. Amber is working on the next generation of space craft which will one day take us to Mars, and she hopes to be on board the first craft that makes that journey, even though she knows it will probably be a one way trip! We recorded a Glow meet with Amber, astronaut Alvin Drew, and cosmonaut Anatoly Artebarsky.

    If you’re interested in finding out more about this, the Glow meet is available – just click the link once you get to the “Meeting Room”.

    Finally, if you’re interested in engineering more widely, you might be interested in these short clips where Amber and Alvin talk about engineering, along with Scottish engineers.

    Keep up the good work!
