It's not rocket science: come, launch out of the Blue!

General description

So they told you the sky was the limit? This spring BEST Delft will prove the opposite.

Have too much clothes in the closet? Too much stuff stashed in the corner of the room? Found a murder weapon? Don’t know what to do with it? We have a solution: send it to space. We’ll teach you how.

A week-long workshop on Aerospace in one of the top Technical Universities in Europe is waiting for your application. During the event you’ll get to know the engineering and design behind the successful launch of a rocket.

Where is Delft, you ask. In the center of the world! Located just next to Rotterdam, the biggest European port and The Hague, where your country may be on trial, this is one of the most picturesque places in the Netherlands. And this year, a few lucky participants will have a chance to celebrate the birthday of our King and join the orange madness, Delft style.

Follow the smell of stroopwafels to Delft and launch a rocket with the flying Dutchmen into the Blue sky!
