This event gives aspiring engineers a chance to test their high-flying creations. For a shot at a $5,000 cash prize, the student-designed and built rockets must fly to an altitude of one mile, deploy an automated parachute system, and safely land where they can be recovered. In the event of inclement weather, the launch day will be held on Sunday, April 17.
Media interested in covering the Student Launch should contact Angela Storey at (256)544-0034 no later than 4pm Thursday, April 14.
