1st & 3rd Place in the Battle of the Rockets Competition!

On Friday, November 30th, St. Mary’s participated in the 2nd Annual STEAM- Battle of the Rockets Competition at JSerra High School. Two teams of three students competed in the event for Grade 7 & Grade 8. Our teams invested many hours over several weeks to design and build their rockets. On the day of the event, both teams predicted outcomes in terms of altitude at apogee and time aloft. Despite some impressive rocket designs by the other six competing schools, St. Mary’s came on top! Our Grade Grade 7 team took first place and Grade 8 team took third place! Each team member won a scholarship, a seat in the Engineering Magnet Program and automatic admission to  JSerra Catholic High School. Congratulations to our students on this tremendous achievement!
