Welcome to the New Zealand Rocketry Association
NZRA members have one thing in common. They love rocket launches !
With the advent of Rocket Lab launching satellites into space from New Zealand we have seen a surge of interest from Kiwis keen to learn more about rocketry and educators wanting to inspire a new generation of students into maths, science and engineering.
What ever your interest in rocketry we are keen to help you in your journey.
