New Projects and Board to Kick off the Year

With the start of a new school year, YUAA has a new set of projects and a new board. This year YUAA will take on a new set of projects. Some, such as the Rocket Competition Project, are continuations of successful projects from previous years meant to cater to new members. Others, like the Advanced Project and the Multi-Stage Rocket Project, build on projects from last year, specifically the UAV and Rocket Competition projects. A fourth and final project, the Radio Astronomy Project pushes YUAA into entirely new territory as we take on the task of designing and building a radio telescope. Our first meeting will be on Wednesday September 3rd at 7:30 pm in the Mann Center.

We are pleased to announce this year’s executive board below who will make these projects possible.
