About the Team
2018-2019 Team Hopes to Build on the Success of 2017-2018 SLI Team
NASA SLI is a college-level high-power rocketry challenge. The Troop 17 Student Launch Team is the only middle school team whose proposal was accepted for the 2018-19 competition and one of only 7 middle and high school teams. The Troop 17 SLT won three national awards in the 2017-2018 competition:
- First Place in STEM Education
- Second Place in Altitude Competition
- Third Place in Best Looking Rocket
STEM education and community service are key priorities for us. We are focused on elementary education and disadvantaged youth. Our award-winning STEM education program reached over 2500 youth.
Over the 8 month long program, we design, analyze, document, test, and fly a high-power rocket carrying a science payload to an altitude of one mile. We follow NASA’s rigorous R&D process alongside NASA engineers.

The program culminates with Flight Week at NASA in Huntsville in April 2019. The Team needs to raise $15,000 and are actively seeking sponsorships.
