Troop 17 Student Launch Team Accepted by NASA

Troop 17 is excited to announce that their 2018-19 proposal has been accepted by NASA!  Troop 17 is the only middle school team accepted by NASA to compete in the Student Launch Initiative, a premier college-level STEM challenge.  Our team of 15 Scouts is busy working with NASA engineers at Marshall Spaceflight Center to design, build, test and fly a high-powered rocket that will soar to an altitude of one mile above ground level while conducting an in-flight science experiment to attempt to harvest the heat generated by the rocket motor during launch and transform it into electrical energy.  See our team webpage for more details!
