Team America Rocketry Challenge

The goal of the team is to give underrepresented, low-income high school students the opportunity to explore STEAM through rocketry. Every year, we build a team of 16 students from various schools in the greater Boston area who over the school year gain hands-on experience designing, building and launching amateur rockets to compete in the national Team America Rocketry Challenge.

The program is hosted at the MIT Edgerton Center, and is funded, organized and run by experienced professional mentors with STE(A)M backgrounds, MIT undergraduate students, and junior mentor alumni. The club meets at the MIT Edgerton Center once a week from 4pm to 6pm, September through May. 

The club is at zero financial cost to schools, students, and their families. The curriculum is tailored to hands-on STE(A)M exploration, as well as networking opportunities with like-minded peers, and professionals in STE(A)M fields. A primary goal of the club has always been and will continue to place underrepresented students in top-tier universities and colleges with world-renowned STE(A)M programs.
