Competition winner to see design go into space
Imagine being in space, travelling so fast that you circle Planet Earth 15 times a day! Visualise what you could see, what you could do, just like our Faraday-1 spacecraft which will blast off into space this year atop an Electron Rocket.
This is what inspired lots of entries to our competition to design a mission patch for our Faraday-1 spacecraft, which is launching in July 2020. Entrants could make their designs any shape or size, and they could be painted, drawn, sewn, a collage or designed on a computer… anything that would fire up the imagination and creative skills.
Our competition was open to all ages from anywhere around the globe
Whether you are an artist, scientist or inventor? And if you like engineering, crafts and being creative, the Faraday-1 space mission patch design competition was open to all ages.
The four entry categories were: Under 4’s, primary school students, secondary school students and over 18’s.
Listed below is all the information you will need to enter the Faraday-1 Mission Patch Competition plus an Activity Plan for teachers and guardians.
In August 2019, the Xbox-sized Faraday-1 satellite will be rocketed into space. Then from 500 km above our planet, orbiting 15 times a day, the 7 experiments (or “payloads”) on-board will try out new technologies and services in space and to make different discoveries.
