The teams that ranked high in the Rocket Competition held under the umbrella of the T3 Foundation, under the leadership of Roketsan and TÜBİTAK SAGE, will be announced at TEKNOFEST at the award ceremony to be held at Istanbul Atatürk Airport between September 21-26.
Teams will compete in four different categories
The competition consists of four categories: High-School Category (5,000 feet), Medium-Altitude Category (10,000 feet), High-Altitude Category (20,000 feet), Challenging Task Category (10,000 feet). Only high school students can participate in the Competition’s High School Category.
Teams that will compete in the challenging mission category, held for the first time this year, must have participated in a rocket competition before. In the competition, it is aimed that the rockets designed and produced by the teams reach the target altitude. The minimum four kg payload carried in the rocket is separated from the rocket by various methods. All subsystems and the payload of the rocket must be recovered in a reusable manner following the launch.
