BrookX Rocketry Team #10 in the Nation

After a resilient journey, the BrookX rocketry team achieved a new milestone in the STEM competition. A team with all underclass members managed to travel thousands of miles and spent hundreds¬†of hours testing and launching rockets in Connecticut and Upper New York. With the Motto, “Assertiveness, Resilience, and Collaboration”, we dared to Demand the Impossible and believe Everything is Possible.¬† In the¬†2024¬†National Final of the¬†American¬†Rocketry Challenge, the largest student rocketry competition in the World, the BrookX team placed #10 in the Nation, #1 team in the state of New York, and #1 rookie team in the Nation, and won a $5,000 award prize!¬† More importantly, Stony Brook School is now receiving an invitation from the NASA Student Launch Initiative (SLI)¬†to design, build, and launch high-powered rockets that can travel¬†mile-high in the sky starting in the fall of 2024.¬†¬†Our team would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the SBS members in your support of our program activities.¬† The members represent our school in the 2024 National Finals¬†@ Washington DC (May 16-19) are:
