Aeronautical Velocity Challenge

Information and resources for AVC

 

The Aeronautical Velocity Challenge is a STEM initiative focussing on addressing Australia’s shortage of scientists and engineers.


Design teams will partake in challenges including; designing, producing and dog-fighting balsa model propeller powered planes, and designing, producing & launching bottle rockets to achieve a maximum velocity whilst travelling a maximum distance. Students compete in teams of up to six students to design, produce, test & evaluate their prototypes. Teams are required to justify their design & engineering decisions verbally to the judging panel.


This competition is an ideal opportunity for schools, students, teachers, community and local industry to engage in practical numeracy and literacy activities in a fun and innovative engaging environment in the pursuit of becoming STATE CHAMPIONS.
