Parts and Pieces...





  • Submit an application for a team of three to ten students (grades 6-12) on or before December 1, 2019.
  • Build a model rocket that carries one raw hen egg to an altitude of 800ft, stays airborne for between 40 and 43 seconds, and returns the rocket to the ground safely. The eggs and altimeter must be carried in a capsule that separates from the rest of the rocket and recovers together using one or more parachutes.
  • The rocket must have a gross liftoff weight of no more than 650 grams, a minimum length of at least 650 millimeters, and be powered by commercial rocket motor(s) of class “F” or smaller with no more than 80 N-sec of total impulse across all motors.
  • Fly your rocket in front of an observer from the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) for an official qualification score between September 1, 2019 and April 6, 2020.
  • If your score from the sum of two flights is one of the 101 best, you will be invited to compete for a share of the $100,000 prize package in a national fly-off on May 16, 2020.
