AMORY (WCBI) – The Amory High School Rocket team is heading to the national finals. The team found out Monday they were picked to be among the 100 teams heading to Washington, D.C. May 12th. The Team America Rocketry Challenge will allow the team to compete for over $100,000 in prizes and scholarships.
The competition this year will make a team fly its rockets 800 feet high and then return to earth. The catch however is the two raw eggs onboard must also return to earth without being broken.
The American winner then will travel to London to compete for the international title.
The team is trying to raise money for the D.C. trip. You can help by following the link below.
