Above all - the people! This is the principle we follow in each of our daily worklife. This includes also our business activities.
This also reflects upon our aim to support young talents who strive to turn their potential into real-life success. The core example of this principle is our cooperation with AGH Space Systems.
The Skylark rocket
Becoming a sponsor of the Skylark rocket dates back to September 2021. The project is a result of a coordinated work conducted by the AGH University of Science and Technology students.
Our involvement was recognized by a display of our logo on the rocket’s surface during the technological competitions in Portugal and Drawsko Pomorskie.
The 3D printer as a support for the Skylark project
In order to improve the flow of this ambitious project, we funded a purchase of a Prusa i3 MK3S + 3D printer. This amazing device enabled them to create small elements requiring high precision, various mechanical adapters with intricate geometries, and larger non-load bearing internal parts, as well as prototypes of other structural elements for testing purposes. Thanks to the precision and speed of the Prusa MK3S+ these parts can be produced quickly and with great attention to detail.
Young engineers have so far used their own or borrowed equipment to work on rockets and rovers. Providing them with this device has made the work on individual components of the vehicles smoother.
In addition, the Prusa i3 MK3S+ is of particularly high quality. Particular attention was paid to the automatic calibration of the work table, which has an impact on the ease of print preparation as well as the stable, uninterrupted production of components. The choice of the printer’s model was also based on the high-quality bearing. Because of that, the structural parts of the rocket could be produced with an impeccable precision.
Case study and UX training
However, our support for this project did not end there. Our UX and Web designer came to share her expertize with the AGH Space Systems marketing section.
This took place in the shape of online workshops regarding both matters. They touched upon, among others:
- visual identification,
- defining information architecture,
- creating interfaces.
We made sure that the participants of the workshops finished the course with a factual prototype of a website that will aid them in their future attempt to create one.
Our contribution to the organization of workshops in the field of web design and UX was also positively evaluated. According to the representatives of the student association, this is a key activity for marketing the AGH Space Systems project. The newly designed website will result in such aspects in the future:
- easier communication with sponsors,
- efficient transfer of information to fans and the university itself,
- facilitation of the future recruitment process to the student associatnion.
From the AGH Space Systems’ perspective
As the members of the student association declare, the cooperation with sponsors is one of the foundations which enables the functioning of AGH Space Systems. Without the support of partners, space projects would not be possible to implement. Our involvement was considered to be a great help, much appreciated by all members of the team and the university.
We thank the team of AGH Space Systems for the trust placed in us. Our cooperation enables the development of a future-oriented project, on which young aspiring engineers and designers work. We hope that the skills they gain during the implementation of the project will find their application in their future professional careers.
Our future involvement
We definitely do not call it an end! As for 2022, we aim to create future prospects of cooperation. We are planning to conduct IT workshops regarding, among others, IT project management and team work management.
According to a representative of AGH Space Systems, it will enable a more efficient exchange of information in the software team of the Rocket Section. This is extremely important for improving the work of the entire team.
