Competitive Rocketry Explorer Posts/Clubs

In 2016 the Patriots’ Path will be the home of several new Competitive Rocketry Explorer Posts/Clubs.  Each post may only have six youth members.  The youth will participate in a national competition with other high school/middle school aged youth.  The posts are forming now to begin planning for program in early May.  Activities will begin as soon as each post registers.  Each team will design and build their own rocket.  Several criteria based on times and distances must be met to qualify for the finals to be held next March in Virginia.  Official qualifying flights will be documented by a TARC representative.
