Smart Model Rocket Launcher and Data Logger
An Electrical Engineering Major's Senior Project
Model rocketry is a very popular hobby among people of all ages and has the potential to be a great teaching tool. The educational areas of science, technology, engineering, and math are not as popular among youth and young adults these days for many reasons. A few reasons that youth are losing interest in these areas is a lack of fun and real life application in their education. This document proposes a senior design project that addresses some issues with current STEM education by using model rocketry to teach the dynamics of rocket flight.
