Space City Rocketry is a competitive high powered rocketry team. We design, build, and launch rockets to compete at the Spaceport America Cup held in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Space City Rocketry’s first project, Prometheus hit an apogee of 7,200 feet at Spaceport America Cup 2018. The team returned a year later with Oberon, which reached about 10,000ft and earned the UH team the 28th place overall over 100+ teams. Each rocket was six inches in diameter and about 10 feet tall! Space City Rocketry aims to grow bigger and expand our horizons in the upcoming years.

Another goal of Space City Rocketry is to provide its members with tools to succeed in the engineering field and other industries. Some Space City Rocketry members have been exposed to the industry and have applied engineering practices so that its members can become prepared for their future in the field.
Many of our members are engineering students who have extensive relevant hobbyist experience. We know that to compete at the highest level, we must utilize the latest technology to construct a robust and well-engineered design. We heavily rely on external sponsorship for resources to create an outstanding rocket and succeed in the competition.
