MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Congratulations to all AURC teams. The inaugural competition has concluded after 4 days of presenting, scrutineering, launching and recovering rockets. The Australian Youth Aerospace Association would like to thank the Thunda Down Under organisers for hosting the AURC at their rocket festival this year in outback Queensland. Check out the leaderboard to see how your team stacks up and stay tuned to our LinkedIn and Facebook to see competition media and future updates. We hope to see you again in the very near future...

THE FIRST OF ITS KIND

The Australian Youth Aerospace Association (AYAA) is proud to support the inaugural Australian Universities Rocket Competition (AURC) at this year's major rocketry event Thunda Down Under 2019. Students are offered the unique challenge to design, build and launch a single-stage, high powered rocket using a commercial-off-the-shelf solid fuel propulsion motor. Teams are scored in their preliminary design, the quality & innovation of their manufactured rocket, the rocket launch trajectory and the safe & accurate recovery.
