Student sounding rocket exchange program
The Canada-Norway Student Sounding Rocket (CaNoRock) exchange program is a partnership between the Universities of Alberta, Calgary and Saskatchewan, the University of Oslo and the Andoya Rocket Range in Norway.
Undergraduate students spend a week (fully funded by the CSA and TLEF) on site at the Andoya Rocket Range, gaining hands-on experience in sounding rocket and payload instrument design. You can earn course credit for completing the programme.
