Core Values

Safety

As outlined by our safety code, our team is committed to ensuring that safety is part of our culture and is a value adopted by all of our members. As such, we have adopted the High-Powered Rocketry Safety Code that is developed by the Australian Model Rocket Society (ARMS) as our primary code. The ARMS is Australia’s premier representative body for rocketry and was chosen due to its proven safety record and close relationship with the AURC. This code represents the minimum safety standards that the ANU Rocketry team is dedicated to upholding, In addition to this, we also apply industry workplace health and safety standards to reinforce our code. 

Diversity and inclusion

We embrace cross-cultural interchange and recognise how important it is to communicate and understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses. Through the development of the awareness for our differences we have grown a new appreciation for the characteristics learned when embracing one another’s diversity. Our inter-disciplinary team has enabled us to not only succeed in rocketry competitions but to develop ourselves and our knowledge from business to avionics. With focus on gender diversity we have and will continue to strive to create an environment that is inclusive and safe for all members.

enrichment and innovation

We strive to enrich the lives of students by providing them the opportunity to be supported by like-minded driven and dedicated peers in an environment which is entirely student run. Our team is constantly looking for ways to improve students access to innovative processes by employing collaborative processes to demonstrate the importance of partnerships and support. We have developed an environment at ANU Rocketry that increases students exposure to the aerospace industry, allowing them to gain contacts and references for the future. With our growing group of amazing alumni we have also been able to grow our own partnership base, which has intern enabled the further enrichment of our students time at ANU Rocketry.
