Troop 17 Accepted Into NASA Student Launch

After placing 11th in the US in the 2017 Team America Rocketry Challenge, Troop 17 is one of only 15 middle and high school aged teams accepted by NASA to compete in the Student Launch Initiative, a premier college-level STEM challenge.  Our team of 12 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 on the thermal insulation of aerogels.  See our team webpage for more details!
