Brainstorming and working 🌪🚀 #OrbitalCommunity
Always hard at work during our club meetings 💸👨🚀 #OrbitalCommunity
Meet Sarah (pictured in middle), our member of the week! When asked for a photo of herself to feature on social media, she said she “doesn’t really have a lot of pictures of just me”. (wish I was that social tbh). Sarah is a junior in AAE & works as Orbital’s Payload Design Lead 📐
So this just happened 😂 Meet Orby, our new mascot that we found during today’s meeting! After a while we decided to take him back outside but it made our meeting 100x better 🐭
#ThrowbackThursday to our first outreach event of the semester! We volunteered at Engineering Tomorrow & worked with elementary school students to make rockets out of alka seltzer & film canisters 🚀 Stay tuned for more photos & videos of the rockets! #OrbitalCommunity
Meet Jon, Orbital’s member of the week! When he’s not hanging out with puppies, he works as the Director of Research & Development as well as being Orbital’s Launch Director. In his free time, he likes skiing and playing drums 🥁
Sometimes we do work 🤷🏻♀️ But in all seriousness, our first meetings were a huge success- we can’t wait to see what our new members will accomplish this semester!
