The Project

The Pathfinder project is the introductary ERFSEDS rockets for new club members and students with little to no expierence with rocketry. In less than a year, the Pathfinder lead is able to take this team of students and teach them how to build a rocket that is eligable to compete in the Spaceport America Cup the following summer. Designed specifically to shape the skills of those involved, students who work on Pathfinder leave the project understanding the fundamentals of modern high powered rocketry.
