2012-2013 Advanced Rocketry Workshop
The 2012-2013 NASA Advanced Rocketry Workshop (ARW) was held from July 18-21, 2012 in Huntsville, Ala. This workshop provides interested teams with project requirements for the NASA Student Launch Projects, details on developing high-powered rockets and payloads, and information on NASA Education's goals and objectives. At the workshop, participants attempted a National Association of Rocketry (NAR) Level 1 certification. More than 50 participants attended the workshop, representing 16 middle and high schools, one 4-H organization, and 15 colleges and universities from 19 states and Puerto Rico.
Developed in partnership with the Alabama Space Grant Consortium, these workshops are open to participants from any college or university in the U.S. and middle and high school teams who have placed in the top of the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) or the Rockets For Schools (R4S) competitions.
Upon completion of the optional ARW, new and returning teams will be sent a Request For Proposal (RFP) in August. Selection of the 2012-2013 NASA Student Launch Initiative (SLI) and NASA University Student Launch Initiative (USLI) teams will be made in late September, 2012. After a series of reports, presentations and requirements, teams will travel to Huntsville, Ala. for launch week activities April 17-21, 2013.
NASA Student Launch Projects are sponsored by ATK Aerospace Systems. The annual launch event is hosted at Bragg Farms in Toney, Ala., and launch services are provided by the National Association of Rocketry.
