Hello everyone, I hope we can do many Aerocene launches in London!
At the moment, I am planning a launch with my 45 third year undergraduate students on February 7th at 11am at Royal Holloway University! I hope to launch two Aerocene sculptures with this class. I would love suggestions on how to arrange to launch two Aerocene sculptures together (I only have one at my house at the moment) as well as how to engage the students. And it would be amazing if people wanted to join us! I will provide coffee and snacks
My idea at the moment is to arrange the class in two halves, one for each Aerocene sculpture. I would like all the students to be involved in the launches in some way. So I thought to let them choose a partner and take on certain responsibilities: for example, there should be a weather prediction team, a site-location team, an inflation team, a payload team, a Garmin flight tracker team, a knot team, a piloting team, a deflation team, etc etc. When the students are waiting for the membranes to warm or when they are not actively involved in the launch, I will invite them to document the launch with photographs, videos, and any other cool ideas they have.
These are my early ideas, if you have any thoughts or comments let’s chat !
