CNY Rocket Team Challenge @ Syracuse University’s Skytop Field
Middle and high school students build rockets from kits, paint them, and bring them to Syracuse University’s Skytop field the first Saturday in June for launching. Teams are judged on the quality of their construction, knowledge of the subject, how well they estimated their trajectory, and whether or not their “eggstronaut” survived its ride into the sky.
Awards are given in two categories: junior for grades 4 through 8 and senior for grades 9 through 12. The launches are fun to watch and the general public is invited to attend this free event.
The next rockets event is set for June 3, 2017.
Sponsors: Syracuse University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science, Lockheed Martin, Technology Alliance of Central New York, NASA, National Grid, and Time Warner Cable Connect a Million Minds
