The Australian Youth Aerospace Association (AYAA) is proud to support the second iteration of the Australian Universities Rocket Competition.
Students are offered a unique challenge to design, build and launch a single-stage, high powered rocket using commercial-off-the-shelf solid fuel motor to either 10 000ft or 30 000ft. Teams are scored in their preliminary design, the quality & innovation of their manufactured rocket, launch trajectory, payload and safe & accurate recovery. After a successful inaugural competition in 2019, teams competing in 2020 will also have the opportunity to design a 2kg CubeSat payload for the competition's first payload challenge.
Stay tuned to our website, LinkedIn and Facebook for competition updates, there is much more to come!
