NASA Launching 2 Learn

Students built and launched Level 1 and 2 high powered rockets, while learning all the math and science involved. Students were given the opportunity to earn their NAR Level 1 certificate. For the Level 2 launch, student teams performed hand calculations and simulations, then compared these estimations with the results from the flight, and then present it to NASA engineers and personnel.

Florida International University (FIU) NASA Student Launch (NSL) Challenge.

NSL Challenge is based on team selection of multiple options - the NSL option consists of 7 different experiments. After a competitive proposal selection process, teams participate in a series of design reviews that are submitted to NASA. These reviews mirror the NASA engineering design lifecycle.

FIU successfully launched their rocket and completed their experiments. The team is now preparing for their final NASA review.
