2018-2019 Project Teams

 

Micro-g Neutral Buoyancy Experiment Design Teams (Micro-g NeXT) is a competition hosted by NASA Johnson Space Center to design, build, and test a tool/device to address a space travel challenge. If our team is selected, we will travel to Houston to test our device in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory.

Our Micro-g NeXT project team is proud to be a woman-led, majority-women team promoting women in the engineering field as part of Princeton University’s “She Roars” Initiative.

 

Design and build a solid-fueled rocket using commercial propulsion, with an 8.8 lb payload, and fly it to 10,000 ft, competing with thousands of students at the largest intercollegiate rocketry competition in the world.

 

Make a rocket go as high as possible with a total installed impulse below 640 Newton-seconds.

Sponsored by the Students of the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS).

 

High Power Rocketry (HPR) is similar to model rocketry with differences that include the propulsion power and weight increase of the model.

HPR is an ongoing internal club program dedicated to teaching new members the basics of rocketry in a fun and inclusive environment, while helping them obtain individual high-power rocketry certifications from the National Association of Rocketry.

 

Our high-performance student-built rocket team.

This year we plan on building two vehicles:

The first will be an advanced technology demonstrator.

The second is our second attempt to reach space: to be one of the first student teams to design, build, and launch a student-built rocket into outer space (328,000 ft altitude).
