Rocketry Update

This year’s competition rocket has made good progress over the month of March. With the design finalized we were able to begin working on parts for the fin cans and electronics bay. This included fiber-glassing sheets of wood and cutting out fins for the upper stage using the fiberglass reinforced wood with our CNC mill. Additionally we cut and sanded most of the wooden components for the fin cans and electronics bay. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact Peter Wilkins at peter(dot)wilkins(at)ubseds(dot)org
