AIAA is a proud sponsor of this competition that honors the first Teacher-in-Space Christa McAuliffe. Students build and launch their own rockets in local competitions. After two launches and parachute landings, the closest average distance to an on-field target wins, and the local winner’s results are sent to the national headquarters to determine the five national winners. The national winners are invited to celebrate and launch at Space Camp, at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL.
