FLL Community, 
I've included information below about an opportunity for 7th-12th grade
students in your area to participate in a team rocketry challenge (not
restricted to FLL, please feel free to pass this along to any interested
teachers or students).  There is contact information included if you
have any questions or see www.launchintoaerospace.org.

Thanks, 
Karen Berger

Team America Rocketry Challenge 
Registration Opens 


Arlington, Va.  – As school doors swing open, students have a terrific
opportunity to look forward to — the Team America Rocketry Challenge. 


Registration is now open for the world’s largest rocket contest
challenging participants to compete for $60,000 in prizes and
scholarships and a trip to next year’s international air show in
Paris.
 
The contest rules and registration are at www.rocketcontest.org
<http://www.rocketcontest.org/> . Participants must design and build a
rocket that will climb to 750 feet and stay aloft for 45 seconds. This
year’s new task is transporting the one-egg payload lying on its side
rather than positioned vertically, mimicking the position of an
astronaut. 
 
Teams have until Dec.1 to register. April 6 is the deadline to conduct a
qualifying launch and earn a trip to the finals, scheduled for May 16 at
the Great Meadow in The Plains, Va. The registration fee is $105.
 
AIA sponsors the contest with the National Association of Rocketry,
NASA, the Defense Department, the American Association of Physics
Teachers and AIA member companies.
 
Students in grades 7-12 in any U.S. school or non-profit youth
organization are eligible to compete. About 7,000 students from across
the country took part in the contest last year, and since TARC’s first
contest in 2003, almost 50,000 students have taken the challenge. A team
from Enloe High School in North Carolina was crowned champion in 2008.
 
The contest gives future engineers the opportunity to demonstrate their
math and physics skills. Working together in a team environment, they
will design a real aerospace product, which will be put through the
rigors of testing and evaluation. 
 
The aerospace industry is actively looking for young people to join its
ranks. The industry is facing a potential workforce crisis as scores of
employees reach retirement age. According to AIA statistics, almost 60
percent of the U.S. aerospace workforce was age 45 or older in 2007.
