Who We Are


Team Photo 2021

Cyclone Rocketry is a multidisciplinary engineering team from Iowa State University that works yearly to research, design, manufacture, test, and fly high-powered rockets. We are comprised of college students to further human advancement in space exploration. Our mission is to educate, challenge, and inspire the Iowa State students, community, and future generations about rocketry, science and engineering, and space exploration. We follow a yearly design cycle and compete in International High Powered Rocketry competitions while working with industry leaders to extend the boundaries of amateur rocketry.

In addition to preparation for competitions, Cyclone Rocketry encourages its members to pursue NAR and Tripoli High Powered Rocketry Certifications. Our members work on their own rockets, in compliance with either NAR or Tripoli standards, to fly and safely recover them to become certified high-powered fliers. This not only earns them the ability to purchase and handle certain high-powered rocket motors, but it is also an invaluable learning tool that can develop hands-on skills useful for building our competition rockets.

Cyclone Rocketry is sponsored by Iowa State’s Engineering┬áStudent Council.
