About Us

Welcome to the website of the Rensselaer Rocket Society!

Meetings are held every Monday and Wednesday on the 4th Floor of the Ricketts Building from 7 pm to 9 pm.

We are the premier rocket club on campus at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Our team consists of students with majors ranging from Computer Science to Aeronautical Engineering who are passionate about rocketry. Our club was founded is the spring of 2011 to compete in the 2012 NASA University Student Launch Initiative Competition. The challenge for this event was to develop and build a high powered rocket that would reach as close to one mile as possible and would carry a scientific payload. We currently have two high power rockets under construction. We are being assisted by John Sicker with things such as the development of our rockets and certifications.
