It all started with an interest in rockets, which led to new ideas. Ideas turned into research and design. Rockets were built, tested, critiqued, and improved. Homerooms faced off during grade-level throwdowns, and only the highest-flying rockets moved on to the final round.
The 2019 Design Cycle Challenge concluded on Friday, February 15. After weeks of preparation, the final competition came down to five rockets, one for each grade level. The class rockets were judged on aesthetics, presentation skills, and rocket performance. The overall winner was the 10th grade with the 12th grade coming in as the runner up.
