Shooting for the stars with NASA and UClan Water Bottle Rocket Challenge website
A leading Staffordshire marketing agency has helped to make a Guinness World Record attempt to launch the most water bottle-rockets in 24 hours, go off with a bang.
Lesniak Swann, a fully integrated marketing communications agency based in Staffordshire, were selected by the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) to build the website for the 24 hour Water Bottle Rocket Challenge after working with the University on several other projects. The challenge was a joint project between NASA, Rokit and UCLan.
Work on the interactive site began earlier in the year, containing all of the information about the attempt, but also crucially acting as a central point for participants to upload their launch videos for verification. The upload area had to be capable of withstanding potentially 1000s of uploads in a short space of time, whilst still remaining user-friendly.
Results from the official Guinness World Record attempt will be published once they have verified all of the videos, but initial numbers recorded indicate that over 2500 bottle rockets were launched in 24 hours, from 4th-5th July 2012.
Jo Heaton, Project Coordinator, has been impressed with the results.
“Lesniak Swann were chosen to design and build the website after completing several other successful projects for us. As usual, they delivered the site on-time, and were able to accommodate all of our requirements. They really engaged with and understood the project, helping to make it a huge success. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”
Members of staff from Lesniak Swann launch their own water bottle rocket, as part of the 24 hour challenge.
