BCHS Rocket Teams competed in TARC 2013 on May 11, 2013

 

BCHS Rocket Team 2 placed 33rd in the Top 100 teams of the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC 2013) from the 735 teams that originally entered the contest by November 1, 2012.  Their single egg carrying “tuber” rocket made a beautiful flight but it went 24 feet over the 750 feet specification and lacked about 2.5 seconds being in the air the required 48-50 seconds.  Their flight scored a 31.55 compared to a perfect score of zero. This placed them in the top 1/3 at the Fly-Off and in the top 5% of all participants of TARC 2013. Wow!

BCHS Rocket Team 1 flew qualified flights but was just out of the Top 100 Teams at 104.  They missed it by only 4 places.

Both teams did extremely well and the returning students look forward to next year.  This was the 11th year of the contest and the 9th year that Butler County made it into the Top 100 of this nationwide competition.

Team Members are as follows:
