Fog City Rocketry Club 🚀 


Join Fog City Rocketry Club! 🚀 

Soar to New Heights with Cutting - Edge Resources, Expert Guidance and THE ULTIMATE COPETITIVE EDGE

Looking for: Graphic Designers and All STEM Majors

We are a new club and we are looking for new members who are motivated to learn, extra brownie points if they are experienced in engineering and design especially if they want to design a rocket engine or a very maneuverable rocket!

Previous experience is not necessary and we have lots of learning resources for all of us to start from scratch!

Only a will to learn and a desire to create is necessary!


  1. Defeat UC Berkely in intercollegiate rocket building competition
  2. Acquire funding for developing our own superior rocket biofuel and the engine that will use it
  3. Design a two stage rocket 
  4. Design a rocket with moving fins for steering
  5. Fix the racing quadcopter we found in the trash

We offer:

  1. Your own small model rocket! it takes an hour to build and we can launch it on weekends. We plan on hosting picnics in the future. 
  2. Bigger, more complex projects done as a group for learning important skills like 3D design, circuitry, programming, simulations, machining and subtractive manufacturing, 3D printing in plastic and metal, CNCing, life and physical sciences.
  3. Many affiliated professor advisors in every subject:
    1. Douglas Codron PhD in Aerospace,
    2. Peter Verdone Mechanical Engineer and Professional Designer,
    3. Dr Xu superb Physicist and Mathematician,
    4. Nicole Adelstein PhD in Chemistry,
    5. Dr Esquerra Biophysicist,
    6. Mark Chan PhD in Biology
  4. Community and collaboration! Application of aviation principles! Research in new aviation technologies! Climate change action!
  5. Access and training with all the tools in the physics department workshop and engineering department workshop

ASME Glider Challenge

A Tournament Style competition

At a Glance

The ASME Glider Challenge is an 8- week guided competition that encourages students to be more involved with ASME at San Francisco State University. Students can compete in teams of up to four or on their own. There will be monthly tournament style competitions and one large competition at the end of the semester. Entries can, and are expected to, iterate on their design and improve their glider as the challenge continues. Each competition will have first, second, and third place winners as well as tier placement in the final competition bracket. Monthly prizes will be printed ribbons, ASME swag, and various goodies. The end of year competition will be a finals competition with a trophy for first, second, and third and valuable prizes in descending order of placement.


The idea of the challenge is to spur club involvement and recruitment at SFSU and provide meaningful competition to studying engineers. This would be an excellent opportunity for inclined and motivated students to showcase their abilities in a competitive environment, thereby expanding and improving upon their engineering skill sets by application. The challenge also provides the opportunity for social interaction and collaboration amongst club members, which in turn will also spur club involvement and recruitment.

Competition Parameters

All gliders will be launched by hand from the same point and can be remotely steered. By definition, gliders can not be driven by any type of propulsion. Performance is simply defined by a combination of flight distance and flight time. Environmental conditions will be taken into account and reruns allowed if judges determine it to be fit. Since the glider will be 3D-printed, you must find a way to get your prototypes as well as final design printed through your own method. Some methods found on campus are the Rapid Prototyping lab and the library.


If so inclined, we can reach out to relevant companies and ask for sponsorship of the final event competition

LEED Green Associate

LEED Certification Training Workshop

Start off the year by making your resume stand out with the premier sustainability designation called the LEED Green Associate! LEED is simply a sustainability scorecard for green buildings. As buildings can become LEED Certified, people can become LEED accredited! The best way to break into the sustainability space is to attain the LEED Green Associate. It also shows employers and clients you have certified knowledge in the field. Since the LEED GA exam doesn’t have a stellar pass rate, the value of the extra letters behind your name will carry even more weight.

Our engaging webinars have helped over 10K students and professionals learn the material cold AND clear the exam with a very high passing rate. The LEED Professional Designation has helped past participants attain internships and jobs and now is a great time to add this credential.
