Sponsors: Chris Baldwin
Purpose: The Engineering club will encourage students to use Math and Science to design and build an economical system. We will take field trips to observe Engineering practices, and we will also design, build, and launch model rockets to test our skills. This year we have a corporate sponsor that wants to document our Level 1 and Level 2 Certifications that will allow the Club to launch rockets with high levels of impulse. We also have an initiative to incorporate robotics into the rockets. Electronic altimeters are required to properly eject the recovery system, and a robotic glider may be launched for programmed flight and recovery.
Meetings: Every Wednesday after school from 3 - 4, sometimes 4:30.
Financial Obligations: $10.00 for the 1st field trip and one small rocket. The second field trip generally cost about $3.00 depending on the destination.
