Dan Koch's Satellite Build

This week from the WSI Maker Lab—-Students in Mr. Koch’s science class anxiously await the results of their satellite build. These young aeronautical engineers had the task of creating a satellite body to protect the internal computer system from the heat of orbiting Mercury. Their computer (pat of butter) had to survive the harsh conditions of the NASA test box which was filled with hot air from Mr. Koch’s hair dryer! Luckily, almost all computers remained intact!
