THE STEM Club

Members of the STEM Club create projects applying ideas learned in STEM classes. Students who participate in these projects gain knowledge of the manufacturing and engineering process: planning, designing, prototyping, and testing.

STEM Club CSULB Rocket Lab Tours

2019-2020

  • The club created a compost bin, which will be used to create compost to use it to create an organic garden.
  • Model Rocket Launch Competition - an event for the school community that launched model kit rockets.

2018-2019

  • launched Compton College's second weather balloon, (PDF) which reached 106 thousand feet, and got onto KCBS news (Click Here to see the video)
  • launched its first rocket to 7500 feet at the high-altitude Reaction Research Society's field near China Lake (Click Here to see the video)

Summary

Rockets

 

 

The goal of the project is to develop skills to launch a 20-foot rocket up towards the Karman line. We started with small model rockets, will be moving to alpha rockets, and we eventually start working with the Compton Comet.

Greenhouse

 

We plan to use Compton College's greenhouse to grow food through various methods; we want to have a balance between growing with soil and hydroponic techniques. We are also working on composting, designing an irrigation system, and then moving to hydroponics.

High Altitude Balloon

 

 

We have launched before and have gotten great results, but there is always room for improvement, for example, working with LMU and launching one of their CubeSat with our Balloon.

  • New projects are always welcome
