The club has an ongoing goal of getting our members certified in designing, building, and launching Level 1 & 2 high-power rockets. We employ both kits and custom designs for the rocket body as well as developing our own payloads equipped with, GPS, accelerometers, atmospheric sensors, and custom PCBs. High-powered rocketry allows our members to develop skills using hand tools, CAD programs, and microprocessors as well as soldering, coding, and experiencing the joy of watching something you built soar into the air at hundreds of miles per hour. In a project tailored towards new members, our seasoned rocketeers provide mentorship to 5-6 members as they build their first high power rocket. These members also lead project sub-teams tasked with building an electronics payload with the goal of collecting flight data and transmitting it to a ground station in real time.
