Open Source Rocketry Accelerates the Pace of Space Exploration

The Mavericks’ program leverages amateur rocketry and civilian space exploration as a platform to engage the next generation in STEM education and space exploration activities. One of the strengths of the Mavericks program (and with open source rocketry) is that no one person does it all; people from around the world collaborate on the projects. This teamwork allows people to share their successes and learn from the mistakes of others; Mavericks relies on SOLIDWORKS PDM to manage this collaboration.


From engineers to designers to part-time inventors, our desire to discover inspires us to build products the world didn’t even know it needed. This site honors the people who are born to design and the products they are destined to create.

Learn how Tom Atchison, founder of Mavericks, is revolutionizing space exploration while fostering the growth of the next generation of scientists and engineers.
