Laurence O’Rourkee scientist at the European Space Astronomy Centre at SEK-El Castillo

Laurence O’Rourkee, scientist and engineer at the ESAC – European Space Astronomy Centre – has once again visited SEK-El Castillo to share the results of this year’s NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory project carried out jointly with NASA and La Canada High School in Los Angeles (USA).

Students have designed shuttles and rockets taking into account the different European and North American measurement systems and with only mechanical propulsion. Following the tests, the systems will be exchanged between the schools to verify that it works using both metric systems.

Students were helped by the science and technology departments and the teachers José Manuel de la Iglesia and Iria Rodríguez.
