Video: ‘Wombat Wocketry’ looks for more student members for this year’s launch competition

The Sheboygan Campus rocket team (Wombat Wocketry) is looking for new members to join for this year’s launch competition. No previous experience or course of study is required. The team is simply looking for enthusiasm and willingness to work together. They recently completed a small scale test launch.

Watch the video.

Students in or near Sheboygan can be involved at what level of time investment that is comfortable for them. The Sheboygan team and a team based in the main campus each design and build a semi-custom high-powered rocket every year for the Collegiate Rocket Launch competition through the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium. T

The rockets go hundreds of feet in the air and have different mission objectives each year. Participation can lead to scholarships, NASA internships, and working on our other rocket team to build payloads for real NASA flights. The Sheboygan team currently meets Tuesdays and Fridays at 2 p.m. in the Mechanical Engineering Lab (times subject to change). Ask us how you can still participate virtually or if you cannot make the meetings. Send questions about the Sheboygan team to Prof. Dirienzo at or the main campus team to Prof. Welsch at
