An experiment inspired by Silly String and built by a first-year MME Engineering student is scheduled to travel into space on August 31st, aboard a Blue Origin rocket. Please note that the rocket did not make it into space though Olivia hopes it will on a future mission.
Olivia Ye, who is studying mechatronics engineering, was still in high school in her hometown of Newmarket when she participated in an online Shad Canada program two years ago that will culminate with a launch in Texas.
“Knowing that something you made is being sent to space is truly an awesome feeling,” she said.
