Central New York Rocket Team Challenge
Saturday, June 06, 2015
8:00 AM - 2:00 PM


Students in grades four through 12 learn about rocket science -- and physics -- by launching rockets as part of the Central New York Rocket Team Challenge, set for June 6, 2015, at Syracuse University's Skytop field. It's a sight to see as the rockets zoom into the sky, separate, and fall back to earth, sometimes in the open and other times in a tree.

Teams of between four and eight students build rockets from kits and decorate them. The rockets are loaded with an altimeter, camera, rocket motor and an egg astronaut for launch. College faculty and professional engineers judge the students on the quality of their construction, knowledge of the subject, how well they estimated their trajectory, and whether their "eggstronaut" survived the ride.

Due to high demand and increasing costs, we are limiting registration to two teams per grade level, per school up to a maximum of six teams per school. All registered teams must have a minimum of four students and all team members are expected to attend the June 6, 2015, launch.

Funding is available for 100 teams, after which we will create a waiting list. Priority will be given to wait listed teams who have no other teams from their school or organization registered. Schools can reuse a rocket from a previous Rocket Team Challenge or buy their own kit to add teams beyond the six permitted.

List to the
event website for rules, registration, and a rundown of the day. Got a question? Contact the event coordinator.

Age Level: Students in grades 4-12
Cost: Free
