SEDS Announces 2014 University Student Rocketry Challenge.
The objective of the USRC is to give students the opportunity to design, build, test, and launch a rocket capable of carrying a three pound scientific payload to 10,000 feet. Teams will be judged on completeness of documentation, time to apogee, success of the recovery device, and the nature of the scientific payload. Launches will be conducted individually by teams around the country. Each team is responsible for submitting its own design, documentation, and launch reports to the judging committee. The winners will be announced at SpaceVision 2014, the SEDS national conference. SpaceVision 2014 is being hosted at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill.
All teams wishing to participate must submit a letter of intent and team roster to email@example.com by February 28th, 2014. Team rosters need not be in their final form by this date.
For more information, please visit seds.org/usrc or contact the program managers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
