Make an Impact in STEM
Since 2002, the American Rocketry Challenge, the world’s largest student rocket competition, has engaged nearly 90,000 middle and high school students in model rocketry. Presented by the Aerospace Industries Association and the National Association of Rocketry, the annual challenge invites students to design, build, and fly rockets to exacting requirements and gain hands-on experience solving engineering problems. The program has launched countless careers in aerospace and defense, and its alumni are helping to engineer the vehicles that will take us back to the moon, and, one day, on to Mars.
The American Rocketry Challenge celebrated its 20th Anniversary in 2022. As we enter our second decade of programming, we are working to take the program to new heights and develop a more diverse workforce pipeline with partnerships focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The American Rocketry Challenge is made possible thanks to our amazing partners. If your company is interested in helping fund the world’s largest rocket contest, please review our partnership information and contact our team.
