Rocket Day

Hi all!

After months of research and with summer coming to an end, we are excited to announce our first event - Rocket Day! It will be a two-day event, composed of Build Day and Launch Day.

Build Day will take place on Saturday, August 27th at 10:00am at the Engineering Design Center (EDC) Room 201. Here participants can get hands on experience in building model rockets and making them flight-ready. It’s also a great chance to get to know other students interested in the team! If you haven’t signed up yet and would like to come please email us at

The models will take off on Launch Day, which will take place shortly after Imagine Day (exact date TBD). All students interested in joining the team, or curious in seeing how high these rockets will fly are encouraged to participate!

UBC Rocket would like to thank our generous sponsors Imperial Hobbies and Sunward Hobbies for making this event happen and setting the team into motion! We could not have done it without you.
