Help Equip the Terrapin Rocket Team
Terrapin Rockets is a student organization at the University of Maryland that designs and builds high performance model rockets. We compete in various competitions each year ranging from target-altitude focused launches to telemetry payload launches. Currently, our group consists of 16 members who represent various majors, backgrounds, and experience levels when it comes to building rockets. This is our 3rd year as a student organization, and we need your help to build new and more advanced rockets!
We have competed in target altitude competitions in the past, and this year we will also be competing in a video payload event during the spring. However, we are looking to grow and advance our rockets by branching into liquid propulsion, a much more powerful engine system that allows for much higher flights. In order to do so, we need your assistance to complete the construction of a liquid propulsion test stand that will be used to test and develop more advanced rocket engines for our future members to compete with.
The $5,000 in funding we are hoping to raise will go directly to the team. These funds will be used to purchase the parts necessary to build our competition rockets this year, and complete the construction of the liquid propulsion test stand by the end of the year.
