Boomer Rocket Team 2018
Boomer Rocket Team is a group of multidisciplinary engineering students at the University of Oklahoma dedicated to the design, construction, and launch of high powered rockets.
We are regularly training and individually certifying new members with the National Rocketry Association (aka Tripoli), as well as building upon our existing foundation of expertise and resources. Our hands-on projects in rocketry help us gain valuable experience applying engineering theory to real world systems. Most of all, they prepare our team for the national competitions we participate in each year. We rely heavily on teamwork both in experimentation and in competition.
We need your help! Let's start out saying that $4,000 is our starting goal, we're wanting to raise 200% of that. The expected budget for this project alone greatly exceeds the annual budget of previous years, so we need your help to get us to the launch pad. The team is eager to begin the rocket construction, design presentations, system testing, and progress submissions for the project, but without funding for materials and travel, we can't make it to Kansas to compete.
Last year we competed in The Spaceport America Cup with Spednik, a 12 ft rocket that broke the sound barrier during a research launch with it's twin Godspeed. Both rockets were created to be interchangeable so when life happens we are always able to launch.
This year, we are competing in The Argonia Cup, a competition that challenges teams of collegiate students to design, construct, and execute a multi-disciplined rocketry project utilizing innovative engineering and technology concepts. Although the basics of the competition are relatively straightforward, the open-ended nature of the challenge requires us to step up our game! We have already started the design work for this semester. Please consider joining our campaign, and helping BRT fly high!
