This is the astronomy branch of the Waterloo Space Society;
our mission is to bring the night sky experience to the student body and general public. We hold observing sessions at the Waterloo Park bandshell, at the KW-RASC dark site, and provide talks on amateur astronomy theory.
WatSat is a micro satellite design team at the University of Waterloo
associated with the Waterloo Space Society. As part of the Canadian
Satellite Design Challenge we intend to design and build a
micro satellite. The team is composed of undergrad students from all faculties, and have submitted their first microsatellite for CSDC testing in May 2014.
Here is their promo video:
"The University of Waterloo Space Transport Advanced Research Team (UWSTART) is a large-scale, hands-on design project involving the design, building and operating of a Space Elevator as part of the Spaceward Foundation's Climber Competition. In this project, there are limitless possibilities from across the board, regardless of your field. Subsystems include Laser Guidance and Tracking, Mechanical Structure design, Motor control, Power Management, Embedded Microprocessor Software Design, Wireless Communication and more."
6) Waterloo Rocketry Team
The Waterloo Rocketry Team (WRT) is a new engineering team that plans to enter the 2011 Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition held in Utah every year in June. It is the first time a team from the University of Waterloo has ever competed in any rocket competition, and we strive to achieve the same high performance that Waterloo teams are known for. The goal of the competition is to make a rocket with a 10lb payload and send it to an altitude of exactly 10,000ft. We will design, build, test, and launch the rocket ourselves, and we hope WRT will continue this tradition into future years
