Our Last and Final Update!
We want to thank everyone who contributed to our campaign last year - it was because of you that we were able to successfully complete and fly our competition rocket in the SpacePort America Cup! Without your help none of this would have been possible.
Update on our competition results: On July 20th - 24th, we competed in the SpacePort America Cup and finished 24th out of 45 teams in our category. Our rocket, ‘Show Me What You Got,’ had a beautiful flight and landing. Check out our Facebook page for a video of the launch and photos from competition! Everyone had a great time, and we’re planning on competing again this year with a new design. Stay tuned for updates on our new project and fundraising campaign!
To conclude, with your support we were able to represent OU and the Gallogly College of Engineering at a new, international competition. Throughout the design and build process, we learned different procedures and manufacturing techniques that we’ll be able to apply in the following years for new projects and competitions, so it’s only up from here. We’re already applying what we’ve learned to our plans for this year’s competition, and we can’t wait to beat last year’s score! We’ll be posting updates to our Facebook page as the competition season gets going.
Thanks again to everyone who donated and made this possible for us. See you soon, and Boomer Sooner!
