Our Mission

Welcome to the Lenoir-Rhyne Rocketry Team,  in association with Ballooning, Engineering, And Rocketry (BEAR) Club. Lead by our advising professor Dr. Douglas Knight and our head student engineer Jeremy Wagner, it has long been our goal to create an environment for students to explore interests in engineering, physics, and aviation through the pursuit a common goal in rocketry. Each year we design, build, and fly a rocket from scratch. Organized into a small engineering team similar to those found in actual corporate settings, our program both gives students precious real-world experience as well as provides the opportunity to learn valuable interpersonal skills. We are open to all Lenoir-Rhyne students interested in engineering, physics, or rocketry in general, regardless of major. Go Bears! 🐻 🚀
