L1 Month

Team Lead - Peter Summers

L1 Month is SHC’s beginner rocketry project. Students receive classes on the basics of high powered rocketry and then have the opportunity to purchase a kit based on a design they create with those skills. They are provided with resources to build and test their rocket, and assistance with launch and recovery operations. These rockets are launched at Huntsville Area Rocketry Association (HARA) launches, as well as launches hosted by SHC. Students will receive their L1 Rocketry Certification upon a successful flight and recovery of their rocket. 

How do I get L1 kit?

Each student purchases their own dedicated L1 rocket kit  through SHC. They get to design, build, and fly their rocket, which resources and mentorship provided by SHC.

When is L1 Month?

L1 Month begins during the fall semester, immediately following Two Month. It is recommended to start with L1 Month before going to other more advanced rocketry projects. 

When do I launch?

During the spring and following fall students can attend the monthly launches hosted by the Huntsville Area Rocketry Association (HARA), as well as launches held by SHC itself.
