S1 Team Win National Competition

Over 1500 pupils from across the UK recently took part in the National Spaceport competition, an outreach programme run by Lockhead Martin designed to promote UK spaceflight to younger generations.

We’re delighted to say that Team Green Rockets from Lomond were awarded 1st Place! Judges noted that the team’s submission showcased an excellent design which balanced the core areas of cost, performance and environmental impact. Not only was their design technically sound but was also presented in a very clear and powerful way with judges being particularly impressed with their presentation and analysis of key spaceport issues.
Science Teacher, Miss Devillers said:
It was a pleasure to witness the hard work and effort students put into this competition. From the moment I announced the objectives of the competition to the end of the day, all teams tried their best to design a spaceport station that the UK could be proud of. The winning team went above and beyond my expectations -and the judge’s! They created a beautifully clear PowerPoint presentation to showcase their design, including graphs and analysis. They worked very hard, and I am so proud of them for winning. They truly deserved it!
Well done Logan, James, Rory and Andrew – what a fantastic achievement!
