There has been a tremendous surge in interest in rocketry, partly spurred on by the accomplishments of game-changing companies like SpaceX, Virgin, Rocket Lab and Blue Origin. Here in Canada, even though rocketry has not been one of our traditional technology niches, a growing number of students from coast to coast are showing that not only are Canadians passionate about the subject, we can also be among the best in the world. Because of the remarkably enthusiastic response to this panel, it will take place in two parts to allow the level of participation that the subject of Canadian rocketry from a student perspective deserves.
