National Rocketry Championship

This year teams are challenged with designing, building and launching a mid-power rocket with the primary goal of reaching the greatest apogee possible. Motor selection will be limited to ensure a fair competition between teams. Teams will also be required to submit a technical report detailing their design and build.

We are now accepting teams into the competition. If you would like to take part, please fill in our registration form.

The above criteria are the primary goals of the competition, however, there are many aspects to the competition. Full details about the competition and criteria can be found in the competition brief and other resources below.
