Small Rocket Project

 Small Rocket Project

Every year, we organise the Small Rocket Projects for potential new members, to give them experience with the basics of rocketry. The project is focused on first year Bachelor students of the TU Delft, but anyone who is interested can apply for the project! During the SRP, you will do a full cycle of designing, building and launching a small rocket in a group of 5-6 students, together with an experienced DARE member as mentor. Your goal will be to bring an uncooked egg to an altitude of 1 km, and, equally important, bring it back safely to earth. To do so, you will get several presentations of DARE members on several rocketry topics, including propulsion, stability, electronics, parachute recovery, and many more. For an impression, check the Small Rocket Project Aftermovie of 2016-2017!
