Rocketry Innovation Challenge

Space is the final frontier. It is necessary to encourage students of all ages to be encouraged in learning space science. There is no better way to learn space science than to build and launch model rockets. However, since this involves hazardous materials and pyro technique, it is necessary to build an eco-system involving policies, procedures, and controlled protocols for launching rockets. Model rockets, regardless of sizes, can’t and should not be launched from any location. They must go through a certification process and be launched from an approved launching ground.
