Engineering gets ready for NASA Student Launch Initiative in Alabama

Standard

The Northview Engineering Rocketry Team had a very successful training run last weekend.  They used an L-1000 rocket motor to push their rocket to an altitude of 5196 feet.  They only missed our target altitude of one mile by eighty-four feet.  Best of luck to these Wildcats in the coming weeks as they finish preparations for their mission to Alabama, and well beyond.
