STEM / STEAM
The key component of STEM and STEAM is integration. Instead of teaching disciplines in independent subject silos, lessons are well rounded, project and inquiry based, with a focus on interdisciplinary learning.
STEM and STEAM align with the way we work and problem solve in our daily lives. Making it an exceptional way of instructing and learning. With STEM we are teaching skills the way they will be used in the workforce, and the real world.
Future learning for future generations.
Who can participate?
Everyone is welcome to participate in the program, there are no restrictions on who can submit their artwork and participate
The "launch your art to space" program is designed to engage the community and students with a focus on STEM/STEAM and allowing a space interaction for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths in a visual and exciting experience.
All artwork must be uploaded via the provided web form on this page prior to the finish date.
What is a rocket fairing?
- A payload fairing is a nose cone used to protect a spacecraft against the impact of dynamic pressure and aerodynamic heating during launch through an atmosphere. More recently, an additional function on some flights has been to maintain the cleanroom environment for precision instruments. Once outside the atmosphere the fairing is jettisoned, exposing the payload to the space environment.
- The standard payload fairing is typically a cone-cylinder combination, due to aerodynamic considerations; however, specialized fairings are in use as well. The type of fairing which separates into two halves upon jettisoning is called a clamshell fairing by way of analogy to the bifurcating shell of a clam. In some cases the fairing may enclose both the payload and the upper stage of the rocket, such as on Atlas V and Proton M.
- If the payload is attached both to the booster's core structures and to the fairing, the payload may still be affected by the fairing's bending loads, as well as inertia loads due to vibrations caused by gusts and buffeting. Traditionally, payload fairings have been expendable.
18.104.22.168 From Sketch to Rocket
You can send us your artwork at a sketch level or a completed digital version, we will review your artwork and if needed will correct any colouring to ensure it stands out when it gets printed on the rocket fairing. We will release a high resolution final fairing montage prior to completion so you can spot your artwork and follow it to space, you may even be able to find it when the fairing arrives at the WASP space museum.
