Students who are interested in rocketry can choose an IP project that involves building a basic rocket and making adjustments to meet various challenge requirements.
Option 1 – Work individually on a rocket project. Set your own challenge goal and follow the Engineering Design Process to research, build, test and improve your rocket.
Option 2 – Join a team of other NLA students. Set your criteria as a group, plan and take the steps of building, testing an improving your rockets. Contact Dr. Butler or Mr. Nelson to join a team. A parent may also be the facilitator.
Option 3– Participate in Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC). If we don’t have enough NLA participants to form a team, you may join a local group outside of NLA. There is a cost to enter this challenge that can be divided among team members. See the link for detailed information regarding this option. http://rocketcontest.org
