Australian Universities Rocket Competition
The Australian Youth Aerospace Association (AYAA) is proud to support the annual Australian Universities Rocket Competition. AURC 2024 will be commencing later this year!
Students are offered a unique challenge to design, build and launch a single-stage, high powered rocket using commercial-off-the-shelf solid fuel motors to 5,000ft, 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 successful competitions in 2019 and 2020, teams competing in 2024 will also have the opportunity to design a 2kg CubeSat payload for the competition’s payload challenge.
