SEABROOK ROCKET TEAM BLASTS OFF AT NATIONAL COMPETITION

Seabrook - The Seabrook Intermediate Rocket Team competed in the National Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) in Manassas, Virginia on Saturday, May 14. The all girls 7th grade team qualified to compete as one of the top 100 teams in the nation.

The team of ten intermediate students was the youngest team at the competition. They competed against high school teams. This year's challenge was to design a rocket that reached an altitude of 750 feet, landed in 45 seconds, used a 15" parachute, carried a raw egg payload, and returned the egg to the ground without breaking. The Seabrook Intermediate team had a successful launch and return; finishing the competition among the top 30 teams in the nation. “We are so proud of their accomplishment,” said Science Magnet Coordinator Jan Larsen.

The girls were also chosen by the organizers to be the face of the TARC competition and were interviewed by a camera crew. The video will be used to educate CEO's of engineering and technical companies about the rocket competition and the students who participate.
