SEDS Leon I Methane Rocket Engine
This will be SJSU’s first rocket engine, the Leon I. Design calculations and computer modeling are complete, and CFD simulations have confirmed our results. We also have an official quote from GPI Prototyping, so provided enough funds, we are ready to go!
We’ll be sending out a sponsorship package to engineering companies, but we also want you to get involved too!
**All donors will get to have their name in the credits of our digital media of the test fire**
