Wichita State University is going to launch a rocket, the capsule has to survive reentry. The future engineers of the SEEDS program have been challenged to design the reentry capsule for Wu and the brave space explorers from Wichita State. The winning design will have to meet stringent safety guidelines in many aspects. This challenge is not for the faint of heart but only for the diehard future engineers.
This will require good management of time, materials, and finances. Participants will be placed in teams and they will be competing against other teams for the winning design. The team that scores the highest in all the combined categories will be the winner for the day. This activity will require proper documentation of the engineering process and stretch the creativity and imagination of the designers.
