Aerospace Team uOttawa provides undergraduate engineering students with hands on experience in the aerospace field. Since funding covers a considerable amount of the costs of the materials used to build the plane, our club and team would not be able to function or go to competitions without it.
Mars Rover team
The University Rover Challenge is an annual event that is held in Utah, US. This competition allows teams from all over the world to compete against each other in 4 missions that simulate how a rover would work alongside Astronauts on the Martian surface.
As a new team planning to compete at the 2020 competition, EEF has played an important role in helping the team by providing the opportunity to some members to visit the 2019 competition as spectators. This allowed those members to observe other teams and learn what works, what doesn’t, as well as what the focuses of a new team should be. EEF has given the team a chance to make connections that are proving invaluable as we continue to develop our design for the 2020 competition.
