Student sets rocket trajectory for nationals

April 9, 2013

By Staff

Skyline High School’s Physics/Rocketry Club is headed to the Team America Rocketry Challenge National Fly-Off May 11.

The club’s design is one of 100 rockets selected from 725 entries from across the country in the contest. Skyline also is one of two clubs that will represent the state of Washington at the altitude and duration competition in Washington, D.C., next month.

To qualify, Ian Walp, Crystal Liang, Kieran Dong, Griffin Johnson and Pan Zheng, all juniors at Skyline, worked together to design, construct, test and successfully launch their model rocket carrying a raw egg.

“I’m extremely proud of their hard work and their accomplishments,” the club’s adviser, Becky Fowler, wrote in an email.
