Students at University level from Norway and Canada travel to Andøya Space for a week with an aim of building and launching a student sounding rocket. In addition to lectures and lab work, there are social gatherings, nature experiences and cultural exchange. The students is very hands-on, and their work will directly affect the outcome of the sounding rocket mission.
The rocket must be assembled and then tested before it is taken out to the launch pad. The students must also act as mission managers, telemetry operators, payload managers and so on. After the exciting launch day students must analyze the rocket flight and all data received and present a final report.
