Competition Rocketry Team
Project Lead: Gabe Surina email@example.com
Students work on different teams to build all components of a competition level rocket. Launches/competitions occur once a year in New Mexico during June at the annual Spaceport America Cup.
Spaceport America Cup
Dynamics - Calculate the aerodynamics and physics that define the shape of the rocket.
Recovery - Fabricate the parachute and parachute ejection system.
Structures - Design and build the body and internal structure.
Design and build the on board computer which controls the recovery system.
Chem - Mix and test the solid rocket propellant.
Hardware - Design and machine the aluminum casing and graphite nozzle.
Hybrid Motor Development
This year we want to develop our skills and knowledge with hybrid propulsion systems.
