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 10,000 or 30,000 feet. In 2020, teams can also design a 2 kg 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.
