SEDS-USA is pleased to announce the 2014 University Student Rocketry Challenge. This competition challenges teams to design and launch a high-powered rocket to an altitude of 10,000 feet while carrying a standardized payload. Teams may earn additional points by including a custom payload or propulsion system.
The competition is open to teams of students from any university within the United States, and there is no cost to enter. Teams will be required to submit design and fabrication reports throughout the competition, and will participate in several engineering reviews.
The USRC builds on the success of the national rocketry competition held by SEDS for the past three years, which has seen over 200 students gain hands-on engineering experience. The first place team will receive a prize of $1000.
Official competition rules can be found at http://new.seds.org/usrc. In order to participate, a letter of intent must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 28, 2014.
