- Western Rocketry Exhibition Launch
- Time: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
- Location: Vince Grady Field
- Description: Come join us for an exhibition launch to inaugurate the first-ever Western Rocketry Club!
During the exhibition at Vince Grady Field, we will be launching several rockets recently built by club sponsors. We will also have a tent set up with some examples of all kinds of rockets that could be built and launched as part of this university sanctioned club.
In the event of inclement weather, we will hold an informational meeting for the club in Horrabin Hall Room 62.
Founded in 2020, Western Rocketry will be a student led organization open to all undergraduate and graduate WIU students. Western Rocketry provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experiences in designing, building, and launching model rockets.
This club promotes exciting experiences for students in all areas of study and will host regular rocket launching events that will be open to the student body, the general public, as well as members of the community and region.
Western Rocketry Club is a student organization sponsored by Science Education faculty member Dr. Sebastian Szyjka (School of Education) and Assistant Dean, Dr. Gregory Montalvo (College of Education and Human Services). Western Rocketry is a member of the National Association of Rocketry.
