Rocket Competition

About the Competition

The aim of the competition is to provide young people with abilities such as designing with a team consisting of members who have knowledge and experience in different disciplines, doing technical research regarding rocket systems and subcomponents, solving complicated problems together using training they received, and doing technical reporting. 
Participants will also have the opportunity to meet professionals working in this area and other teams with common interests, and exchange ideas with them. 
The fact that young people can produce and fly rockets of their own design is a great source of motivation in their career choices focused on science, technology and engineering in the future. 
Young people who participate in the competition will work with a systems engineering vision when doing their designs. The below activities must be conducted accordingly:
-    Firstly, identification of general technical requirements related to the system
-    Converting general system requirements into detailed requirements at subsystem and component level before proceeding to the detailed design phase
-    Forming work packages that will be needed in the design and production stages
-    Coordinating and optimizing design information with the related discipline teams (responsible teams for aerodynamic, avionics, structural integrity, useful load and rescue systems and propulsion systems)
-    Fulfilling the production, supply, integration and launch preparation processes for productization of the design
-    Providing the verification and validity (verification of the designed system with analyses and simulations and qualification of the designed system with tests for the designed system to fulfill the targeted task) of the product developed 
-    All processes from the beginning of the project (receiving the specifications) to the end (launching the rocket) must be managed according to the Project Management principles.

The competition has four different categories:
-    High School Category (5,000 feet)
-    Middle Altitude Category (10,000 feet)
-    High Altitude Category (20,000 feet) 
-    Challenging Mission Category (10,000 feet)

Eligible Participant Education Levels for the Competition
-    High School Students
-    Associate Degree Students, Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students and PhD Students
-    University Graduates
Reporting Phases                      
-    Preliminary Design Report
-    Critical Design Report  
-    Launch Preparation Report 

Apart from the information given in the specification, for any other questions you want to ask about the competition, you must be a member of the relevant mail group from the ROCKET COMPETITION GROUP link. The questions you will ask and the answers to these questions will be clear to the other members of the mailing group. Templates and Rocket Engine catalogs for the reports that competitors need to prepare will be announced on the Teknofest website until the application period ends.

After the financial support applications, the IBAN NO will be requested from the teams that are eligible for support and the support amount will be deposited into the accounts. It is not possible to provide an equal amount of support to the teams that are entitled to financial support. After evaluating the support amounts and the materials to be purchased, an upper limit will be determined. The amount of financial support to be given will be determined by evaluating the request lists and reports of the teams.

Q: Can you give a general information about the reports?

C: Evaluation; The Project Pre-Evaluation Form will be made in three different stages as Project Detail Report and competition scoring. Teams that do not submit the Project Pre-Evaluation Form and Project Detail Report files will not be eligible to participate in the competition.

Q: Can we determine our transportation route ourselves?
A: After the relevant form expires, the contestants will be called and informed about the ticket information and type, transportation will be via the route we have determined.

Q: If we want to come to the contest with our own vehicle, is it possible to provide financial support?
