Team America Rocket Challenge 2006

The Team America Rocketry Challenge is a national rocketry contest open to 7th through 12th grade students who must enter as teams of three or more to design, build and fly a rocket that meets a pre-defined mission objective. This year's challenge is to design, build and fly a model rocket carrying a raw egg and return it safely to the ground while staying aloft for exactly 45 seconds and reaching an altitude of 800 feet.

LUNAR is honored to support the TARC qualification launches again this year. TARC teams are welcome to participate in the regularly scheduled club launches. The launch fees are waived for all TARC teams. As the deadline approaches in April, special TARC launches can be arranged at Robertson Park in Livermore by contacting:
