Would you build a rocket if you could?

March 19, 2010

Well eight students do and have been selected  for the ultimate science project: to launch a rocket. Whether they can we have to see in 23 days untill it gets launched into space. The Rocket Project is the  first literal product launch and the ultimate product demonstration. Sponsored and created by Sony the project hopes to portray the spectacular capability of both the Intel chip and the Sony VAIO laptop.

I find the above video quite inspiring even though my interests don’t necessarily lay in rocket science. Did you notice how one kid asked the instructor whether that’s their text book and got it handed to him with the speech of ‘be careful what you wish for’- hilarious but shocking. I am so excited to see how these students will pull this together. 

We can follow the students as they attempt to launch a rocket and make their dreams a reality, through online initiatives such as Twitter  and Facebook and a documentary film. For more information go to their website.

As I mentioned before, they got 23 days left un till the launch date.
