About the Competition

The aim of the competition is to provide young people with abilities such as designing with a team consisting of members who have knowledge and experience in different disciplines, doing technical research regarding rocket systems and subcomponents, solving complicated problems together using training they received, and doing technical reporting. 
Participants will also have the opportunity to meet professionals working in this area and other teams with common interests, and exchange ideas with them. 
The fact that young people can produce and fly rockets of their own design is a great source of motivation in their career choices focused on science, technology and engineering in the future. 

The competition has four different categories:
-    High School Category (4,000 feet)
-    Middle Altitude Category (8,000 feet)
-    High Altitude Category (18,000 feet)
