原住民火箭发射团队建造火箭

Stephanie Yazzie, Northern Arizona University student and NAU Space Jacks team member, poses with her team’s rocket in this photo from the 2019 NASA First Nations Launch (FNL) competition.

In this competition, students from Tribal Colleges and Universities, Native American Serving Nontribal Institutions, and schools with American Indian Science and Engineering Society chapters demonstrated their engineering and design skills.

FNL 2022, an Artemis Student Challenge, called for faculty advisor-led teams of undergraduate students to conceive, design, fabricate, and fly dual deploy high-power rockets within three challenges with various technical requirements. Winners were chosen by a pool of Native American NASA and industry judges for the competition also included four FNL alumni who completed their STEM degrees and became engineers in the aerospace field.

在2019年NASA首届原住民火箭发射(FNL)比赛中,北亚利桑那大学学生、NAU太空火箭队队员斯蒂芬妮·亚齐(Stephanie Yazzie)与团队的火箭合影。

在本次比赛中,来自部落学院和大学、美国原住民服务非部落机构以及拥有美国印第安人科学与工程学会分会的学校的学生展示了他们的工程和设计技能。

FNL 2022是阿耳忒弥斯学生挑战赛,要求由教师指导的本科生团队在三个具有不同技术要求的挑战赛中构思、设计、制造和飞行双重部署大功率火箭。获胜者是由美国本土的NASA和行业评委选出,其中还包括四位完成STEM学位并成为航空航天领域工程师的FNL校友。
