The Rocketry Division is the organization’s original and oldest division, founded in 2008. This division competes in various scratch-built high powered model rocketry competitions. Historically, the Rocketry Division has competed very successfully in the Battle of the Rockets (BoTR) against universities from all over the country, placing 1st and 2nd in numerous categories over 7 years. Most recently, the division competed in the Central US Rocketry Tournament (CURT) 2016, now known as the Argonia Cup, an intercollegiate competition organized by the Aero Mavericks in conjunction with Kloudbusters and SAE-Wichita. Last year, the Rocketry Division participated in IREC 2018, the world's largest intercollegiate rocketry competition! Over 100 teams from all over the world participated in this competition last year. This year's challenge is to launch a 10 lb scientific payload to 10,000 ft and recover it successfully.
