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. Teams can be sponsored by schools or by non-profit youth organizations such as Scouts, 4-H, or Civil Air Patrol (but not the NAR or other rocketry organizations). This year's challenge is to design, build and fly a model rocket carrying two raw grade A large eggs and return them safely to the ground while staying aloft for exactly 45 seconds and reaching an altitude of 750 feet.
See the NAR and AIA websites for the contest rules.
