We had a great time yesterday at the Children’s Gasparilla Parade. Thank you MOSI for letting us be part of your float!
Here’s an update from our Base 11 team. This update marks the halfway point to the phase 1 report deadline. The phase 1 report is the final preliminary design report which requires approval from Base 11 in order to continue on with the competition. We have made major strides with this project but there is still a lot more that needs to get done. As the video states, we are making plans to have a static test fire in the summer with our sub-scale liquid engine and plan on launching a sub-scale rocket next summer. We appreciate everyone support and involvement with this project and look forward to seeing where it takes us! #base11 #base11spacechallenge @base11stem
Members of our Base 11 Space Challenge team gathered together for a 24-hour workathon last week! In that time, they created a Piping and Instrumental Diagram for their liquid engine design, worked on the project Interim Report, and worked on flight simulations in order to better understand their design. A few hours of sleep were lost, but that's nothing compared to the progress they made. They have lots more work to do but it was a great way to start off the new year! #base11 #base11spacechallenge #usfengineering #rocketry
Future NSL full scale Apis III's nosecone next to it's little sibling, Apis III-S. We'll be updating with build progress over the next couple months.
Perfect launch! Our NASA Student Launch subscale rocket, Apis III-S, performed successfully today in every aspect. We reached an active of about 3,700 feet and every aspect was recovered successfully. Furthermore, our payload descent levelling system functioned perfectly, allowing our main body tube to descend horizontally and preventing foreign debris from entering the payload bay. #studentlaunch
And Apis III-S (NASA Student Launch subscale) is go for launch! Check back for updates 🤞
In just one week we will be having our fundraiser at Chipotle! All you have to do is order something and mention us at the register and we get a portion of the proceeds. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
Check out those fillets! Set 1 of 3 completed for our NSL Subscale rocket, Apis III-S. Each set of fillets takes 24 hours to fully dry, so this is a slow process, but it's crucial that take the time to do it properly.
A little bit more done yesterday on our NASA #StudentLaunch subscale rocket. We completed the shaping and sanding of all fins, did the initial epoxy of fins to the motor mount, and epoxied upper centering rings to the motor mount. We also had a chance to teach some of our members how to use the @inventables X-Carve. A couple more build days to go and we will be ready to launch in December 🚀 #rocketry #stem #nasastudentlaunch
We had so much fun these past three days visiting different Middle schools from around the Tampa Bay Area for the Great American Teach In. We taught kids about rocketry and helped them build their own construction paper rocket that they were able to launch using the power of their Stomp! Thank you @nasa for the awesome lesson plan on your website. Also, thank you to all our members who came out to help teach these kids about Rocketry and STEM education!

Join SOAR for a General Meeting on Wednesday from 6:00 - 7:00 in ENB 109! We will be giving important updates and status reports on all of our projects. We will also be discussing all of the exciting events we have going on this week! And of course we will have one of our rockets there, so come check it out and see how you can get involved!
We had a great time today at MOSI where we worked with the Makers Club to build and launch their own paper rocketS! We also came to show off some of our rockets at the Embry-Riddle Drone Day! We hope everyone enjoyed making their rockets and seeing ours! #stem #musuemofscienceandindustry #rocketry #stemeducation #stomprocket
