The American Rocketry Challenge is a flagship program in the aerospace and defense industry designed to encourage students to study and pursue their careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
This team is one of 100 finalists competing for the title of this year’s national champion and a prize of $ 100,000. More than 5,000 students from 27 states, the District of Columbia, and the US Virgin Islands make up more than 600 teams.
The world’s largest student rocket contest.
The rules of this year’s competition require teams to design, build, and launch model rockets that carry one raw egg to three different altitude and time goals. Within 41-44 seconds in the National Final, 825 ft seconds and 825 ft-all rockets and eggs will return to the ground.
This challenge promotes friendly competition between teams of diverse socio-economic, ethnic and geographical backgrounds. Many teams, including the Air Capital STEM Club, have launched a fundraising campaign to enable participation.
