Our team Astra Aether, consisting of Alina, Boris, Linus, Hongye, Lennard, Niki and Constantin managed to win the German CanSat competition 2022/23 on 03/17. This now means that we are qualified to represent Germany in the European finals of the CanSat competition from June 26 to June 30. More information about our CanSat competition can be found here and a deeper insight into the launch campaign, as well as more pictures and information about how we won can be found here.
We are the team Astra Aether from Bad Homburg. On this website we inform about our progress in competitions of all kinds, our activities in the LemaS program and the research projects of all students we supervise. The team consists of Alina, Linus, Boris, Hongye, Lennard, Niki, Constantin and our supervisor Sebastian Fischer. Our activities are mostly limited to the Kaiserin-Friedrich-Gymnasium.
Extracurricular competitions are a good way to challenge and encourage interested students. This is done through constant education and setting new challenges that are always met. Below are the major competitions and research projects that we have participated or been involved in over the past 3 years.
The CanSat - a nationwide competition, which is subsequently continued in a European round. The goal of the competition is to build a mini-satellite, which will perform various missions. This includes a given primary mission and a self-selected secondary mission. More information about our mission can be found here.
The International Science Olympiads are a group of competitions in which all participating countries provide a team consisting of 4-6 people in the different fields of science. In Germany, these teams are selected through the 4 rounds of selection competitions for the International Olympiads. We take part in these selection competitions every year and regularly achieve great success.
The BwKI - the nationwide competition on the latest cutting-edge technology, artificial intelligence. The goal is to design and program your own AI that solves a task of your own choosing. So far, we have participated twice and reached the national finals both times.
The CanSat - a nationwide competition, which is subsequently continued in a European round. The goal of the competition: the construction of a mini-satellite, which is to carry out various missions. This includes a given primary mission and a self-selected secondary mission. Our progress at that time can still be seen today in the BLOG.
The goal of this unique DLR competition was to design and build a model of a wind turbine ourselves, including our own energy storage system. With our new approach of a vertical wind turbine, which rotates almost frictionless by magnetic ball bearings, gains its energy by lorentz forces and then stores the gained energy with a hydrogen fuel cell, we achieved the 3rd place Germany-wide. Our documentation can be found in the archive.
Currently we participate in the CanSat competition, which is very costly due to its intensity. Therefore, we thank our sponsors:
