Our students had an awesome day teaching kids about basic aerodynamics using hoop gliders and straw rockets.
Navy Rockets was founded in 2014 as a senior design team at the United States Naval Academy that would compete in the NASA University Student Launch (USL). The competition will take place in April of 2018 in Huntsville, Alabama with the goal of launching a rocket to an apogee of 5280 ft AGL, performing a successful autonomous recovery, and upon landing deploy a rover from inside the rocket. Through eight months of design and preparation for the competition, Navy Rockets will also reach out to the local community to encourage the study of science and engineering through a variety of programs run by organizations such as AIAA and STEM. Be sure to Like and Follow us on social media to stay up to date with the team all year.
We look forward to competing, and as always, Go Navy! Beat Army
