2022 Student Rocket Launch

The Student Rocket Launch Returns!

Join United Launch Alliance and Ball Aerospace in the 14th annual Student Rocket Launch! The event will be held on July 23, 2022, hosted by the Southern Colorado Rocketeers at their Hudson Ranch Rocket Site in Pueblo, Colorado.

Witness the launch of Sine, Cosine and Tangent, three intern-built sport rockets that are projected to reach altitudes of approximately 4,200 feet. This year, 18 different payloads have been integrated across the rockets, all designed by either members of the Ball Intern Remote Sensing Team (BIRST) or K-12 students. Each payload is being judged by their design phase, testing phase and payload performance. The top three scoring teams will earn a cash prize for their school or a nonprofit organization of their choosing.
