The UHS/AJM Academy of Engineering rocketry program took a trip down to Houston in December to meet with some of the brightest minds in the space and aeronautics industry at NASA.
The students were tasked with presenting a spreadsheet that would simulate a trans-sonic rocket flight. The presentation involved a number of very intricate mathematical formulations and took a number of hours to prepare.
The engineers who worked for NASA were very impressed with the students' work and spent time working through some minor alterations to their project. The students are now able to take the knowledge they gathered from NASA and use it to build a trans-sonic rocket that they will launch May 14th in Fredericksburg, Texas.
