High Power Rocketry

Individual High Power Rocketry

Project lead: Nick McNally nick.mcnally@ubseds.org

A strong interest in High-Power Rocketry is one of UB-SEDS’s greatest assets and a favorite tradition. Recently, seven of the US-SEDS Rocketry participants travelled to Torrey Farms in Potter, NY to launch their individual rockets and earn National Association of Rocketry certifications. In April, five participants earned their Level 1 Certifications and another earned his Level 2 Certification. UB-SEDS members generally attend these launches once or twice a year.

Students can build their own rockets starting with a Level 1, and working up to a Level 2, once they've received their level certifications. Each level certification allows students to purchase larger motors that they can then use to design larger rockets.
