Charger Rocket works is one of 45 collegiate teams to be accepted to the Student Launch (SL) Competition for 2018. The team will be designing, testing, and flying a rocket that will fly to 1 mile and deploy an autonomous rover upon landing.

Eric Zimovan commented on the acceptance saying, “I’m excited, but a little scared. The amount of work is daunting, but I’m ready to push my limits as engineer and work with a great team.”

The team’s first scored milestone will be a preliminary design review (PDR) due November 3rd. After this date, stay tuned for updates regarding our design and testing process, as well as our outreach activities.
