ISU Student Space Program Rocket Launch

Date(s) - July 18, 2015
1:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Will the rocket attain the correct altitude? Will the fragile payload be returned safely? Will the vehicle fly straight and stable?

Teams composed of graduate level ISU participants from all over the world will design and launch model rockets that must meet a certain set of design criteria. They will design the airframes, select the motors, use computers to simulate the flight, and construct the rocket in a limited period of time.

It is a real-world challenge and the team with the best performance will be recognized for their hard work. This is an event open to the public and visitors of all ages are welcome! Depending on the weather, this activity could eventually be rescheduled on Saturday 25th July, 2015.
