It was all systems "go" in Templeton Friday.
Five Templeton school teams showed their stuff in the qualifying round for the world's biggest rocket competition. Templeton students usually make it to the finals in the Team America Rocketry Challenge. This year's mission is to build a rocket that launches exactly 825 feet in the air in under 45 seconds. All of that, while protecting the precious cargo: a raw egg. The teams qualified Friday with an almost perfect score. "It was probably the best one because it was the closest score we've ever gotten. It was impeccable," said Chris Vanharmelen, team leader of the Templeton Rocket Club.
The competition aims at inspiring students to pursue engineering careers.
