My name is Henley Mullins. I am a grade 8 student at St Bonaventure's College in eastern Newfoundland. My interests include tinkering and rockets (following SpaceX). I am also an avid reader, play the string bass and love the outdoors. I want to be a mechanical engineer when I grow up. I believe that SpaceX and other private space companies will lead humanity into the future of space.

Experimental Optimization of a Hybrid Rocket Engine
Region:Eastern Newfoundland
City:St Johns, NL
School:St. Bonaventure's College
Abstract:A functioning hybrid rocket engine was built using store-bought materials. ABS plastic fuel grains were 3D-printed in various configurations. ABS plastic and paraffin fuel grains were burned in a combustion chamber with gaseous oxygen. The force from the engine was measured and changes in shape, material, and fuel/oxygen ratio were made to optimize for thrust.
