Team America Rocketry Challenge
Revere Community STEM Parent Association (RCSPA) is proud to announce the results of our first team to compete in the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) www.rocketcontest.org. Approximately 7,000 students from across the nation compete in TARC each year. Teams design, build and fly a model rocket that reaches a specific altitude and duration determined by a set of rules developed each year. The top 100 teams go on to compete in White Plains, VA. This was RCSPA’s first year to have a team participating in the contest. The team, appropriately named “Minutemen”, was made up of Junior and Team Captain Chris Brandt, Junior Zac Wilson, Sophomore Isaac Brandt, Freshman Mark Oleson, 8th grader Sonny Kim and 7th grader Ben Tipton and coached by Scott Tipton with help from Steve Oleson and mentored by Jack Koslen of Solon. Nationwide, 735 teams participated. The Minutemen were the 18th alternate team finishing just 2 points short of participating in Virginia.
