    CRW Spends Time in the Machine Shop

    posted Mar 9, 2012, 6:52 AM by Nathan Rigoni
    During the course of designing and building the Arion rocket the CRW team has had the opportunity to take advantage of something that makes UAHuntsville a special university. That something is the Student Machine Shop/ Prototype Lab. Some of the students who make up the CRW team have taken a class in learning how to operate the machinery used in manufacturing many of the parts that they will go on to design for industry. This class gives them access to the shop and allows them to create what ever they can design. After having completed the class the students are allowed to continue access and to create parts that are designed for other competitions, classes, or other student activities. Access to this shop has been great part of how the CRW teams Arion rocket has been created.
