Today’s amateur rockets are more than tubes of aluminum that explode into the sky. Sophisticated rockets incorporate advanced electronics, real-time software, and powerful communications equipment.Why buy a hobby rocket when you can build a much cooler one from scratch? The Portland State Aerospace Society provides the blue prints, open source code, and schematics to build a rocket from the ground up.* Come learn how we make rocketry more open.
- Note: PSAS will not supply you with igniters or ammonium perchlorate. Go get your own explosives license!
