The rocket building at the senior level is much tougher than that of Space School. Not only will you have to build the basic rocket structure from scratch (no kits here), you will use computer simulations to model the optimum fin design for your rocket and use mathematics to explore some of the theoretical principles that underpin rocket design and propulsion. It will take patience and teamwork to make sure your rocket is up to scratch and ready for you to compete against your fellow students.
