Battle of the Rockets
This year, Jordan Rocketry is participating in Battle of the Rockets. Battle of the Rockets is a challenging competition to design and build a rocket and planetary lander that launch to around 1000 feet and deployed a lander. This lander must reach the ground safely and independently of the rocket. Once on the ground, it must upright itself and take real-time pictures and telemetry. This is one of the most challenging competitions, but we are up to the challenge.
Last year, the Jordan High School Rocketry Team was accepted into NASA's Student Launch. This is a rocketry competition that prompts colleges, universities, high school, and middle school teams to design and build high power rockets flown with experimental systems. These high power rockets are to reach an altitude of 1 mile, or 5,280 feet above ground level, often ascending with onboard experimental systems. Currently, we are one of a few high school teams in the nation.
Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC)
In the past, DART, our predecessor, was involved with a national competition to launch a rocket to exactly 750 feet above the ground carrying a raw egg. A few years ago, we placed 25th in this challenge. Only teams within the top 25 places can apply to compete in Student Launch.
