St. Joseph Rocketry Club members

The St. Joseph County 4-H Aerospace Club competed in the final round of a nationwide Team America Rocketry Challenge. The contest tested the club members’ skills at building and launching a model rocket that carried a delicate cargo of raw eggs.

The Team America Rocketry Challenge competition was May 10, 2014 at Great Meadow Events Center in The Plains, Virginia, near Washington, D.C. The competition is part of the aerospace and defense industry's initiative to build a stronger U.S. workforce in science, technology, engineering and math, known as STEM.
