The MIT Rocket Team is a well established independent student group focused on rocket-related projects. In the team's 14 year history, the team has focused on projects ranging from designing and building a custom centrifugal liquid engine, to development of lighter stronger composite airframes. This year, the team will be competing in NASA's University Student Launch Initiative in addition to providing our members with the tools and knowledge to earn amateur rocketry certifications through the National Association of Rocketry.
Rocket Team meetings are Mondays at 7:30pm and Saturdays at 11:00am in the Rocket Team Lab, located on the second floor of the Wright Brothers Wind Tunnel Building [Blg. 17]. The Monday night planning meetings are usually reserved for business and progress updates, lasting no more than an hour. Saturday meetings are usually used for fabrication time and generally last a few hours. Membership is open to all MIT students and new members are always welcome at our meetings.
