Our organization competes in several competitions in addition to our independent Bullisitic Rocket designs. In 2016-2017 we participated in the Florida Space Grant Consortium Hybrid Rocket Competition, the NASA Student Launch Competition, and more. In 2017-2018, we are again participating in these competitions as well as the Spaceport America Cup and several of our own ambitious projects.

All student organizations at the University of South Florida Tampa campus are required to have an advisor in order to maintain the organization's active status. An advisor must be a full time faculty/staff or graduate assistant at the Tampa campus. Your advisor must confirm their role as the advisor in your organization. Enter your advisor's email and an Advisor Approval Form will be sent to him/her for approval. You are encouraged to inform your advisor in advance of a forthcoming email from this system because your organization cannot complete the registration process to become an active organization until your advisor has approved the request.
