2015 Team America Rocketry Challenge
Registration opened Sept. 2 for the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC), sponsored by the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) and the National Association of Rocketry (NAR). In the world's largest rocket contest, some 7,000 students nationwide design, build and fly a model rocket that must reach a specific altitude and duration. Organizers hope to encourage students to study math and science and seek aerospace careers. The top 100 teams after qualification flights go to the finals in Washington, D.C., in May. Top 10 finishers split $60,000 in cash and scholarships. Registration continues through Dec. 12, 2014.
