Rocket Boosters,


      I hope you've enjoyed watching our team progress through this past year. Earning second place at Argonia was great for our first year, but we plan to win this time. We have tripled our membership from 8 to 24 members and had to take on more projects to keep us busy. In addition to our Argonia Cup participation, we are making our own rocket fuel, designing an autonomous drone with the help of industry leaders from Mayan Robotics, and training the next collegiate generation of rocketeers through certification in the Tripoli Rocketry Association.


      Remember to check our website ( for project updates, launch videos, pictures, and more. If you have any questions about what we are working on or would like to visit our lab, let me know at


      Here is the link to our SalukiFunder for 2019 I hope that you will continue to support our team this year and for years to come. 


Over and out,

My name is Adam Vogel and I am the president of the Rocketeers of Southern Illinois. I wanted to share this video made by the SIU social media department. The video briefly describes the building process and launches of our first rocket. We will be busy preparing our competition rocket and drone and will post more updates as we can.


Thank you for your support of our project, it wouldn't be possible without your help.
