We with various STEM fields including Aerospace, Robotics, Materials Science, and Electronics. Previous rocketry experience and/or knowledge NOT required.
Winter Quarter Meeting Times:
- Friday 12:30-3p in Meadowdale 221 (Main Meeting)
- Tuesday 12:30-3p in Meadowdale 221 Lab (Build Time)
Club scope & objectives:
First year Rocketry Club Members will be working towards their Level 1 NAR Certification alongside returning members which are working towards undergraduate level projects. Level 1 Certification entails building a rocket kit, and tricking it out. In this process you can work with simulations software, Arduino electronics, and various tools and manufacturing processes available to students on campus.
Our club is mostly self-taught, and rocketry is a diverse topic that incorporates almost every STEM field from Physics and Aerospace to Materials Science and Chemistry. After you learn the basics you are free to branch out into any field you choose. Our only requirement is a commitment to your own learning.
