    In its first year,the team of EWU Rocketry and K-12 partner Riverpoint Academy of Spokane soared to unprecedented heights.

    EWU earned honorable mention - third place overall out of 50 teams - among those entered at an international collegiate rocket launch competition. Eastern finished only behind teams from MIT and ITA Brazil in the competition.

    "This is an extremely good result for EWU, particularly since the top finishers are dedicated technology schools with aerospace programs," said EWU Professor Martin Weiser, the team's faculty advisor. "Not only did we do well, but we did so on a very limited budget of about $12,000 compared to budgets of over $50,000 for some schools. The students from both institutions put in many hours of hard work to build their different components and bring them together for the launch."
