Rocket Launch 2016

20161029_153146-dsc_7464_00001Our rocketry project ended with much excitement, as the groups tested their custom designed rockets on the launch pad.

RLee (from the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering) demonstrated his large and multistage model rockets which were a joy to watch.

Thank you to the Create Cafe 3D Printing, Express Hobbies, and the Hub City Radio Control Club for making our rocketry project possible.

3D Printed Rockets 2016

Rocket Assembly

The parts for our 3D printed rockets arrived from Create Cafe this week and our new members began assembling them today. They have learned a lot about the importance of dimensioning and the advantages of rapid prototyping.

Stay tuned for the launch next week! (weather dependent)
