The RockOn 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 workshops were a huge success. Since the first workshop in 2008, 240 faculty and students from 36 states plus Washington, DC and Puerto Rico have attended and formed 78 teams. All payloads were completed in time allotted. All payloads were launched and recovered. 75 out of 78 payloads worked. The RockOn 2014 rocket will be a Terrier-Improved Orion. RockOn 2014 will also be the second year using a new microcontroller system based on the Arduino platform. If you have any questions please contact Chris Koehler at or by phone at 303-492-3141.

Virginia Tech students are encouraged to contact a member of the VT SuperDARN laboratory if they have questions.
