While the Rocket Competition team was at Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC) preparing there rocket, Chronos, for a launch which would win them second in the payload competition, the members of the PR team were busy documenting just about everything. After the end of IREC, the photos we submitted in the IREC photo competition. The results are in and Yale the Yale Undergraduate Aerospace Association won first place! When Dustin Koehler of Little Blue Productions, the judge of the photo contest, was asked which photo had won, he responded saying “honestly there wasn’t one image that I could pick out from what you guys had, there were too many GREAT ones.”
This first place finish is very exciting for YUAA and its PR team. Some of the favorite photos are featured in a video Dustin made by compiling his own footage and that of all the teams and they can all also be found on our gallery page. Check the video out here and look out for the gold Chronos, blue YUAA shirts, and YUAA members braving the desert in arches national park!
