On Friday, March 18th, the team gave the Flight Readiness Report, or FRR, presentation to NASA. The FRR encompasses any minor changes made since the Project Design Report, which there were a handful for the design. One of these changes included adding a few legs to the AGSE to prevent bending in the frame for increased strength and safety. Other cosmetic changes were made to enhance the overall design and appearance of the rocket and the AGSE. These changes will be added to the rocket and AGSE in the coming weeks prior to leaving for Huntsville.
On Saturday, March 19th, the team hosted a booth at the NC State University Engineering Open House to talk about the club's involvement with NASA and local outreach. This event is geared towards high school students to get them excited about engineering and clubs along with other student organizations at NC State. This Open House event has a personal meaning to me because I attended the same event when I was in high school and actually visited the high-powered rocketry club booth. In the long run, this made me decide to focus on the space side of aerospace engineering versus the aircraft side.
