Esmée MentingDelft Aerospace Rocket Engineering
Esmée is a student of Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Delft. She joined Delft Aerospace Rocket Engineering (DARE) a little over year ago, in our first-year rocket project.
This is one of the many projects within DARE, our student rocket society. Within DARE we have a spectrum of goals, varying from educating students in rocketry to reaching space with our Stratos Projects.
Within the society Esmée works on recovery systems in various rockets/projects like CanSat (see picture), Aether and Stratos III. Aside from that she also fulfils different managerial positions within the DARE Board, Aether management, and the Launch Day Committee.
Esmée will talk about DARE and the new Stratos III Project, including their growth, both in size of the rockets and society. And, of course, a little bit about how extraordinary it is to be able to already participate in this world during your studies!
