TARC Top 100 Finalists

The Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) kicked off its eleventh season in September 2012. Seven months, thousands of rocket launches, and a few broken eggs later the field of 725 teams has been narrowed down to 100 finalists. In a competition where the lowest score wins, the 2013 cut-off to make the finals was a meager 16.12.

The finalists for TARC 2013 come from 29 different states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The teams represent schools, 4-H clubs, civil air patrol squadrons, science clubs, and even a lacrosse team. These teams will square off to determine a national champion on May 11, 2013 at Great Meadow in The Plains, Virginia.

National finalist teams will be receiving an email from TARC to explain the next steps for accepting an invitation to the National Finals.

Should you have any questions please email Anne Ward, Manager of TARC, at anne.ward@aia-aerospace.org.
