On 25th September, YUAA members visited the annual CT Space Grant Expo in East Hartford, Connecticut.
Co-President Devin Cody, Rocket team leader Brian Beitler and UAV project second Yerin Kim drove down for an afternoon of lectures, presentation and networking with some of the leading individuals in the CT aerospace circle.
YUAA had won $3000 as grant money from the CT Space Grant Consortium (a NASA initiative) in 2014-15, which it used to fund its projects. During the expo, Devin, Brian, and Yerin presented the details and successes of the various YUAA projects from last year.
YUAA is re-applying for CT Space Grant funds for its current projects, which include an Optical Telescope, a CubeSat, a high performance UAV, and a Competition Rocket.
