ICMS Rocketry Team Gets Visit from Sponsor
- November 10, 2017 November 10, 2017
Under the supervision of their teacher Mrs. Dawn Giddens and their mentor Mr. Mike Davis this group of young men are designing and building a rocket to compete in the Team America Rocket Challenge. They have been working hard to complete the construction of two different rockets that they are currently testing. In order to qualify they need their rocket to fly to exactly 800 feet with a flight time between 41 and 43 seconds. Once they are satisfied with the rocket, the National Association of Rockets will observe and certify three qualification flights.
Donald Craig of Donald Craig Electric in Naples, FL is sponsoring the team. Not only has Donald graciously funded their project, but he has also visited the team of boys twice to work with them and check in on their progress.
The Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) is the world’s largest student rocket contest and a key piece of the aerospace and defense industry’s strategy to build a stronger U.S. workforce in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Based on local qualification flights, the top 100 teams are invited to Washington, D.C. in May for the National Finals.
