Crowdfund UC Davis thanks all of the donors who gave to this important project in October. This campaign has closed, but we are grateful for your support!
ECLIPSE Rocketry is a student run engineering club that competes in the annual NASA USLI competition. For this year’s competition we need to:
Previous payload projects include developing a self-locating system without the use of GPS, a lander with photographic capabilities, and a sample collecting rover. Each year, we have successfully launched and retrieved multiple rockets. ECLIPSE will continue to learn and grow this upcoming year with your help.
Your donation will help ECLIPSE reach its goals and provide the team with necessary equipment for doing so. More than that, you will enable passionate engineering students to continue their dreams of becoming rocket scientists. The students who do partake in this process will gain invaluable skills in multiple areas such as, professional writing, hands-on manufacturing, team work, and time management. ECLIPSE alumni have benefited from these skills and club connections by being hired at aerospace industry leaders and pursuing higher degrees.
