The Space Grant Midwest High-Power Rocket Competition

The MnSGC and Tripoli MN, a local high-power rocket club, are running the 2017-2018 Space Grant Midwest High-Power Rocket Competition (where “Midwest” just indicates the location of the competition, which is open to college student teams from all around the nation). In this competition college student teams are challenged to design, build, and fly a high-power rocket with “active roll/orientation control” using which they can try to quash roll, during one competition flight, and “dial in” various specific roll/orientation angles while coasting to apogee, during a second competition flight. The competition will be held at the Tripoli MN high-power rocket launch site near North Branch, MN, on May 19-20, 2018. Spectators are welcome to attend.
