The University of Minnesota’s Rocket Team is competing in the 9th Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC) hosted by the Experimental Sounding Rocket Association. It is an international competition held near Green River Utah from June 26th-28th 2014.

The Rocket Team will be competing in the Basic category, which is to successfully launch and recover a rocket with a 10 pound payload to a target altitude of 10,000 feet. The point of the competition is for the students to design and construct a rocket with all of its components (rather than buying them already manufactured). Commercially purchased items are allowed in the competition, but more points are received for the competition when they are constructed by the students.

The University of Minnesota’s Rocket Team has begun its work on the design of this rocket and will be ready for the competition in June.
