High School Students to Space
We are targeting May 2022 to be the first group of high school students to send a rocket to space.
STEM+C students from Richmond Burton High School in Illinois set the worlds record for highest RC airplane flight. The students set the new world record of 34,800ft. The vehicle had to sustain a 1 minute level flight at this altitude to become the new world record holders.
