Program Introduction

Rocket Engineering Innovation Design Challenge

Commercial aerospace has been firmly in the core position of the world's aerospace economy, and has gradually become the main position of strategic competition among the world's great powers. ASDAN, together with LINKSPACE launch Rocket Engineering Innovation Design Challenge program for high school students. Students will be led by senior instructor of the National Space Center, Chinese Academy of Sciences, LINKSPACE technical director, systematically learning Electronic Information, Chemistry, Rocket technology and physical theories. By carrying out model rocket design, model rocket assembly, and model rocket launch, students finally complete a career experience from practice. Excellent students will also have the opportunity to obtain a recommendation letter issued by instructors.
