SystemsGo New Mexico & New Mexico Tech

Click to view moreWednesday, December 12, 2018 was an eventful day as SystemsGo New Mexico, in collaboration with New Mexico Tech, held a successful Oberth Review. Before the panel of engineers reviewed the flight patterns from eight New Mexico high school rocket teams, New Mexico Tech faculty and students put on a showcase for nearly 70 SystemsGo NM students.

High school rocket teams from Lake Arthur, Hobbs, Lovington, Loving, Jal, and Hagerman presented their flight profiles, which are calculations and graphs showing the flight pattern of their future rockets. Engineers Dr. Michael Hargather, Dr. Curtis O’Malley, Dr. Mustafa Hassanalian, and Mr. Josh Edwards made up the reviewing panel and critiqued the profiles, checking for consistency and safety.

Dr. Hargather commended the students on the level of mathematical intelligence the students displayed while presenting. These students and students from six other New Mexico high schools will launch their rockets on April 16 and 17, 2019 in Jal, New Mexico.
