Our last Big Idea launched on the world’s largest sport rocket. The one before that took 1st Place at the SparkFun AVC. What’s next? Let’s get together and figure it out. Or just have lunch and chat. If you want to help make stuff happen, please attend.
“What’s the Big Idea?” lunches have been popular and productive. Let’s keep it going.
We’re always looking for new meeting locations so feel free to suggest someplace new.

I’m leading an after school club called “technology, robotics, innovation” and I’d love to brainstorm with you all over Thai food.

In July, the SHARC 7MoT payload flew aboard the World-Record-Setting ULA Future Heavy Rocket. Although 7MoT did not perform exactly as planned, we achieved our primary goals of inspiring students, building a team, and delivering a payload for launch. We also got some great data from our piston camera and flight computer. Let’s get together for a postpartum meetup to analyze the 7MoT payload build and launch, discuss lessons learned, and begin planning for the next launch opportunity.
Oh, and pizza.
All interested SHARC members are welcome to attend.

Learn the basics of 3D Mechanical Computer Aided Design at this hands-on workshop using Onshape.
Even if you’re experienced with other 3D CAD packages you will want to see how Onshape can dramatically improve the CAD experience.
We’ll be going over the basics of 3D solid-modeling and show examples of how Onshape was used to design 3D-printed parts for the SHARC 7MoT Payload.
Bring a Mac, PC with Chrome browser, or iPad to participate in the hands-on exercises.
You’ll also have the chance to meet:
