Register by May 1, 2017
THIS WORKSHOP IS AMAZING! If you want proof, look at the pictures from the workshops in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. You will build a REAL sounding rocket payload then LAUNCH it on a two stage Terrier-Orion rocket (weather permitting). The logistics associated with the RockOn Workshop are great and we need an accurate count on the number of participants before May 1, 2017. Space is limited and your registration does not hold your spot until payment is received. The $999 registration ($899 if you register before March 23, 2017) may seem large (it was $1699 several years ago) but it includes: a hot breakfast and lunch each day of the workshop, a special dinner on the last day, workshop handbook on USB drive, a shirt, all RockOn payload materials, and launch costs. Participants will work in teams of three. Each team will build one RockOn payload. Participants pick their teams and participants will decide how to divide up the provided hardware before the conclusion of the workshop. Each participant MUST be present on the first day (Saturday, June 17, 2016 9:00 AM) for the start of the workshop. Please see the Travel and Lodging Information for more information.
The workshop is open to all interested with the following conditions:
1. Participants MUST know how to solder and MUST have practiced before attending the workshop.
2. Participants MUST be familiar with the C, C++, or Arduino programming language. All the code is provided during the workshop so don't let this deter you from coming to the workshop.
4. Workshop is designed for college students and college faculty. If you are a high school student, you may attend the workshop but you will need to have a chaperon or mentor attend with you.
* Launch day is scheduled for June 22, 2017 but the back-up date is June 23, 2017. Please plan accordingly.
