NASA Rocket Competition 2018

Helen Johnson

Team Renegade placed 11th overall nationwide in NASA University Student Launch Initiative (USLI) competition in Huntsville, AL this year. Our students prepared for this event over an eight-month period, researching and developing a high-power rocket including a payload based on NASA mission requirements meant to mirror a NASA launch. The six-person Team Renegade competed against Ivy League schools that had as many as 20 team members and successfully completed their project.

Team Renegade included Project Manager Jennifer Canaday, Chief Engineer Emily Crews, Safety Officer Dean Revell, Financial Officer George Jones, Software Engineer Kayla Cameron, Hardware Engineer William Jones. The team's advisor is Md Shafiul Islam, PhD, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at FSU Panama City. Team Renegade was also mentored by Christoper Crews, past Team Renegade USLI participant and graduate from the FSU Panama City electrical engineering program.
