Get Involved!

In the fall, LRA recruits passionate, talented young rocketeers to help us reach the stars on the Spaceport America Cup Teams. The SAC and certification teams are no longer acceptin applications, but the NASA Student Launch team is still accepting members. Want to learn more? Email us at or find us on Facebook!


Spaceport America Cup High power Team

The LRA enters the annual Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition's Spaceport America Cup with a newly designed and fabricated rocket each year. To get this rocket off the ground, a different subteam focuses on each aspect of the rocket's design. In the 2018-2019 school year, the LRA will have five subteams: flight systems, ground systems, propulsion, electronics, and experimental. If you would like to join one of these teams, you can attend LRA Day to explore what each team does, the go through the application and interview process. 

Certification Group

Want to learn how to build your own rocket? In the Certification group, 12 students each semester get to design, build, and launch their own rockets. To learn more about what is involved in this process, attend LRA Day to receive the application!



Other Projects

Additionally, each year we participate in various other challenges. In the 2018-2019 school year, we will be entering the NASA Student Launch program, to launch a rocket and a scientific payload and face a technical critical design review process. You can join this team at any time, so please contact us if you are interested!
