Pueblo, Colorado — The tournament in Pueblo is out of the ordinary as 615 teams compete in the National Finals of the American Rocket Challenge.

Saturday is an important day for high school students from the Air Capital STEM Club in Wichita, Kansas, to meet at the Hudson Ranch Rocket Launch Site in Pueblo to begin their final flight.

Pueblo American Rocket Challenge.. The challenge consists of 100 teams from all over the country chasing $ 100,000 in cash, prizes, and national champion titles.

The American Rocketry Challenge requires a team of 3-10 junior high or high school students to create and fly a model rocket that meets challenging design requirements and accurate altitude and flight time goals. This year’s rules require teams to build a single raw egg-carrying rocket, launch it to an altitude of 800 feet, and stay in the air for 40-43 seconds. The rocket must safely return the egg to the ground intact. The requirements have changed slightly for the two launches in the domestic finals.

The Saturday tournament will run from 9am to 3pm.
