LPRD Rocketry is a project that lives on the belief that dreams should be pursued fervently and pursued now. We are a group of students at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities and other Minnesota colleges, and our dream is a dream we think is shared by the human race. Ever since people have been able to look up at the heavens, the stars have been a source of wonder. We want to contribute to the engineering body of work that will allow humanity to expand to that final frontier. Specifically, we aim to use the engineering skills of students to design, manufacture, and test liquid propellant rocket engines, and we invite you to join us.
Thursdays 6-8pm, Saturdays 4-6pm in Akerman 15
General Focus Areas
Engine design, manufacturing and testing; Data analysis; model rocket design and assembly; programming; electrical systems; design; innovative thinking
