AYRC launches new website

Postby kopius » Mon Jan 13, 2014 8:52 am

The team at the Australian Youth Rocketry Challenge Inc. is excited to announce the launch of the AYRC website.

With a cleaner layout and even easier navigation, the fresh new look is in time for the much anticipated 5th anniversary. With planning for the 2014 AYRC well underway, we hope that everyone enjoys the new site as much as we did putting it together.

Now it’s time for teams to start planning for the new rules soon to be released and launch some eggs ;-)

Check out the new site here: http://rocketcontest.org.au

Great job Blake.

Involvement with the AYRC 2011 is what got me started in this great pastime, The first year I was a spectator and the susequent years, as a helper, so I can highly recommend it to everybody.

Regards,
Mark P

PS Someone close by is itching to know the rules for AYRC 2014. I am thinking he might be wanting to achieve a threepeat :!:, so you might have to make it a bit more of a challenge this year.

Just a question Blake.
How do the kids and schools get involved with rockets in the first place?
Unless there is somebody at a school with some sort of interest in rocketry how do the kids get some (a) interest, (b) basic knowledge and (c) some guidance to foster the interest?
Ari's school visits could spark an interest - how can we foster it from there?

Suggestions/ ideas anybody???

At every school I have visited I speak about this challenge indeed and encourage them to give it a go....info about the comp. is passed to the teachers on the day. :D

More schools/teachers/students know about it the better naturally. :wink:

As rocketry doesn't have a huge amount of exposure in Australia, it generally takes word of mouth and the good work of those who commit time to talk and present at schools etc. Unfortunately there will always be a some schools/organisations that do not have an interest in rocketry or many other subjects for that matter and those students may miss out. The best thing we can and will do, is to continue promoting to schools to expand participation in AYRC and rocketry in general.

Any schools or students wishing to get involved in rocketry at any level should contact Australian Rocketry, AYRC or a club who can help them get started.
