CTF Bottle Rockets

On Thursday January 29th I was at ERLC’s CTF/CTS Day at Harry Ainley and Louis St Laurent schools. Dave, Danielle and I did a session about CTF in the morning, there was a big crowd with some great questions and comments.

In the afternoon we participated in Dennis Pratt‘s session “Projects Plans & Presentations”. He gave an overview of CTF, pointed out where to find information, and talked about how he has been starting to implement CTF in his classroom.

And then the fun began. He told us he was going to let us do a CTF challenge – bottle rockets. He showed his rocket and did one demo launch. He showed the launcher and explained that his his CTF class students would only build the rockets, not the launcher but that we were going to make both. He divided us into groups and here is what happened:

After all of the teams finished their rockets we tested them out in the parking lot.

What a great session. Thanks for showing us what a CTF challenge might look like Dennis.
