Touchdown Earth: Space Mission Proposals

During the culmination of the three-day camp, the student participants were able to showcase their environmental awareness and technical knowledge through Touchdown Earth, a space mission proposal contest. The mission idea activity was designed to gauge the participants’ understanding of the concepts presented in the lectures on space missions and satellite payloads during the camp. Fourteen science high schools from the 16 divisions of Metro Manila selected by DepEd to join the camp presented their space missions. The proposals were judged by PhilSA scientists Ms. Jamaica Pangasinan, Dr. Paul Leonard Atchong Hilario, and Mr. Mark Jayson Felix based on creativity, technical soundness, and time management.

Two (2) missions bested the rest of the proposals. These are “MIMA” or the Monitoring Illegal Mining Activities in Remote Areas by Bianca Louise B. Cruz and Oscar A. Araja II of the City of Mandaluyong Science High School, and “V-SAMS” or the Venus Seismic Activity Monitoring Satellite by Peter James Lyon and Ysabela Juliana Bernardo of Caloocan City Science High School.
