The USW Rocketry society allows students to take part in designing, propelling, monitoring and constructing rockets from scratch. Underlayed by mechanical, electronical and engineering techniques, the society gives students who study such subjects, and students who simply have an interest in rockets and space, the chance to gain hands-on experience in the many different skillsets utilised by the UK space industry.
Since it's foundation in November 2018, the rocketry society has designed, built, launched and successfully recovered 3 rockets, reaching heights of over 3,000ft - alongside winning the National Rocketry Championship 2018/19 - a huge achievement!
We have plenty more exciting projects coming up over the next few years including acquiring a new space lab facility and plans to launch a rocket reaching over 6,000ft! If you'd like to know more about our Rocketry society and how you can get involved, please visit our web page.
