Australian Universities Rocket Competition

The Australian Universities Rocket Competition is organized by university students and young professionals in association with the Australian Youth Aerospace Association (AYAA). The annual competition requires students to design, build and launch a high-powered solid fuel rocket to a target height of either 10,000ft or 30,000ft. In 2021 teams can also design a 2kg CubeSat payload for the first payload challenge of the competition. It will bring together Australia’s students and organizations in a one of a kind Australian tertiary competition.
