CNY Rocket Team Challenge

The next Central New York Rocket Team Challenge will be held 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 2, 2018, at Syracuse University’s Skytop Office Park.

Middle and high school students build rockets from provided kits, detail them, and bring them to Skytop for launching. Teams are judged on the quality of their construction, knowledge of the subject, how well they estimated their trajectory, and whether or not their “eggstronaut” survived its ride into the sky.

Here are some downloadable documents that provide more information:

The launches are fun to watch and the general public is invited to attend this free event. If you have questions, contact event director Peter Plumley at
