Winners List

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 850 feet.

See the NAR and AIA websites for the contest rules.
