HAUGHTON, La. (KSLA) - They did it again! Haughton High School’s STARBASE Louisiana rocketry team is going to nationals.
On May 12, Haughton High School’s STARBASE Air Force JROTC rocketry team visits KSLA and talks to us about going to nationals and the importance of the skills of rocketry.
This is the second year in a row that the team is successfully going to nationals.
The rockets built for this engineering challenge must reach certain goals to compete in nationals.
- Reach a certain altitude
- Make sure the egg payload survives
- Be within the time frame to land the rocket on the ground
- Take a basic rocket and adapt to whatever they throw at you
Nationals will be in Manassas, Virginia, and the team leaves next week to register and tour the capitol.
