    Join us for the Zoom presentation by Worcester Polytechnic Institute's High Power Rocketry Club student team.


    Join us for the zoom session to see the impressive work of the students who designed, build and launch a sounding rocket that soars to the altitude of 4500ft, and executes a complex mission.

    The Worcester Polytechnic Institute‘s High Power Rocketry Club (WPI HPRC) is a multi-disciplinary team of passionate students who aspire to be the next generation of space engineers and pioneers.

    The NASA-sponsored initiative involves the hands-on project of designing, building, and launching a rocket to a target altitude in a controlled manner, and deploy the payload during the descent 500-1000ft above ground. The payload is designed to part from the launch vehicle, autonomously land, self-level, and take a 360-degree panoramic photo of the landing site and transmit the photo to the team.
