Engineering In the Air

We flew rockets in the The American Rocketry Challenge and the Student Launch Initiative in 2022. We are flying in 2023.

We recruited 25 new members in the fall of 2022. They added to our 17 returning students. We are ready to take on the engineering challenges of 2023. If interested in our programs, email info@post1010.org.

Our FIRST Tech Challenge Team 6417, the Blu Cru, had a great year in 2021/2022. We are now deep into the 2022/2023 season with game rules (Part 1, Part 2). We did well in the qualifying tournaments in December and January. We continued our success at the Chesapeake Championship in February, winning a trip to the World Championship in April 2023.

We have two teams in The American Rocketry Challenge for 2023. We are designing, building, and flying rockets following the TARC 2023 rules. We will launch qualification flights until April and hope to get invitations to the national finals in May. NASA did not accept our Student Launch Initiative project for 2023. We plan to reapply in summer 2023 for 2024.

Our Botball Team 160 competed in the Botball 2022 program. In 2022, we built and tested our autonomous robots following the 2022 rules. We have a team registered in the 2023 program, and competed in the practice program for the Fall of 2022.

We are registered in the 2023 Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS4STEM) competition. The challenge is very similar to the 2022 challenge where we came in third nationally. We are revising our drone to perform even better and plan to participate in the national competition held at the AirVenture Fly-In festival at Oshkosh WI in August.

We have Behavior Rules and Policies that guide our program. Please review.
