Creative Science Class Talks Spacecraft Design

Monday, April 19, 2010 - By: Dave. McCarthy

Mr. Trevor Williams visited our creative science classes to talk about spacecraft design. Trevor has worked in the aerospace industry for many years as a design engineer, including managing a team of scientists working on the design and launch of Canada's RadarSat 2 satellite. Trevor's presentation outlines the way complex operations such as building a $500 million satellite, can be broken down into simpler steps and how a team can collaborate to achieve their overall goals. Later this term our creative science students will be designing and launching their own rockets and so to have a real-life "rocket scientist" in their midst today was a great opportunity to ask questions. Currently, Trevor is working on a PhD at the University of Victoria connected with his other passion, the environment.
