Plantation High School’s five aerospace engineering teams worked all school year to design, construct, and fly rockets for the Team America Rocketry Challenge, the world's largest rocketry competition.
Two teams made it to the national round and moved up from 42nd to 24th place in the country, scoring the highest amongst Florida’s schools.
This ranking now qualifies both teams to participate in next school year’s NASA's Student Launch, a mile-high scientific payload rocket.
Plantation High has competed in Team America Rocketry Challenge for 12 consecutive years, winning six top 10 and five special awards. Their top tier performances have secured 15 NASA Student Launch project, which is a research-based, competitive and experiential exploration project that provides relevant and cost-effective research and development to support the Space Launch System.
