Spaceport America Cup – Judge Packet 2017 v2


Do you have a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math) background? Are you interested in becoming a Spaceport America Cup Judge?

With 110 teams from universities in eleven countries arriving in New Mexico on June 19, 2017 to compete in the International Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC) – we need enthusiastic people who are trained or have work experience in a STEM discipline to evaluate the rocket engineering teams and projects.  2017 will be the competition’s biggest year yet with students launching solid, liquid, and hybrid rockets to target altitudes of 10,000 and 30,000 feet.

We are seeking a diverse panel of judges with a wide variety of experience and specialties.  So if you can dedicate five days of your time from the evening of June 19th through June 24th – we would love to welcome you onboard!
