Purdue University 2011 Rocket Competition Launch
The SEDS 2011 High-Powered Rocketry Competition was completed in November 2011 with three teams competing to launch a rocket to altitude of 10,000 feet with a 4 kg payload. For more information about the 2011 competition please see here.
The winners of the 2011 competition are:
1. Arizona State University
2. University of Central Florida
3. Purdue University
SEDS-USA congratulates the winning teams and commends a great job to all of the chapter competitors! Prizes for the finalists include a medallion for each winning chapter and a t-shirt for every winning team participant!
SEDS-USA acknowledges that competitors of the 2011 competition needed to overcome many harsh challenges such as fundraising, balancing the competition with school, and waiting for launch sites to become available in the fall after a late harvest to complete the contest. SEDS-USA looks forward to doing a partial redesign of the competition in 2012 to lighten some of these third party challenges and encourages teams to look for future SEDS rocket competitions.
