Viewing Party: Protocase University Rover Challenge Documentary
Thursday, October 6, 2016
Join us Thursday, October 6, 2016, in Sydney for a special TecSocial. Doug Milburn and Steve Lilley from Protocase will moonlight for our regular host Bob Pelley.
Protocase recently premiered a 20-minute documentary about the University Rover Challenge to the 19th Annual Mars Society Convention attendees in Washington, D.C. Representatives from NASA, SpaceX, Lockheed Martin and various space institutes were there to see the documentary and now you get to watch it too! Following the viewing, there will be a Q&A with Protocase team members about their unique experience at the convention.
Protocase proudly supports The Mars Society's University Rover Challenge by providing engineering students from around the world, design advice and precision manufacturing for their Mars Rovers. The company produced the documentary to raise awareness for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education, space exploration, and to showcase the hard work that these engineering students put in to designing and building Mars Rovers that may one day work alongside human explorers in the field.
TecSocial is a monthly meeting for those with an interest in technology and entrepreneurship. It is a free event and is open to the public. A cash bar will be available and door prizes and appetizers (limited quantities) are compliments of our partners, Innovacorp and Holiday Inn Sydney-Waterfront.
