Our team needs a budget of RM150k to compete in Spaceport America Cup 2022 that includes building a rocket, prototypes, registration fees, travel and accomodation fees.
|Fees Type||Total||Sponsored By|
|Rocket and Prototype||RM 35 750||Universiti Sains Malaysia|
|Registration fees and Team's Apparel||RM 7000||Universiti Sains Malaysia|
|Travel and Accomodation||RM 110 500||Companies and the public|
This is our finalised budget for our team and we will publish the expense details on our social media to keep track of the cash flow.
By contributing to our project, Malaysians get a chance to be a part of the project where we will engrave the contributors' name digitally and physically on a metal plate according to the category. We will publish the contributors name on our social media at the end of the campaign.
Category 1 - RM1 - RM250
All contributors' name who contribute from MYR1.00 - MYR250.00 will be coded digitally in a microchip and attached together with the payload. Contributors will get a boarding pass of HEBAT ROCKET LAUNCH as sign of gratitude towards their contribution
Category 2 (RM250 and above)
All contributors' name who contribute from MYR250.00 and above will be engraved on a metal plate and place in the payload bay inside rocket. Contributors will get a boarding pass of HEBAT ROCKET LAUNCH as sign of gratitude towards their contribution
One of the biggest hurdles we are facing is trying to bring the entire team to attend Spaceport America Cup 2022. Due to the high cost of travelling, we might not be able to bring all the team members to SA CUP 2022 if we did not achieve our financial goal
We hope all the Malaysians will come forward to support us. Your support and contribution will be our strength and motivation to win this competition. We will make the university and the nation proud!!
