Another year has begun at Missouri S&T, and with that comes new students for our Level 1 workshop. Each year we hold this workshop to introduce students to the wonderful world of High Power Rocketry. Many are Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering majors but we have members from a wide variety of engineering and science majors represented each year. The culmination of our efforts each year is Midwest Power. We have made the pilgrimage for the last five years and participation has increased each year. Last year we had 25 successful flights and we are hoping to get even more people into the workshop this year. Since rolling this workshop out we have certified over 100 Level 1 rocketeers, many of whom have continued on to advanced levels! This year we are continuing our collaboration with Tim at Wildman Rocketry and adding a donation from John at Rocket Poxy. We couldn’t do any of this without the friendly people at QCRS that welcome us back each year to have these flights and our test flight for IREC earlier this summer. There are many people who also freely give their time throughout the year and at launches, we learn a lot from these “old guys” and appreciate them a lot! We are so grateful for this help in making the workshop affordable and fun for the newbies to the sport. We will be updating this thread periodically throughout the semester until MWP when we will fly a load of rockets and try not to freeze in our tents!
