The Lawn Dart Saga (the story of the Tesla STEM HS Rocket Project)

Video Caption: It IS rocket science – in high school
It started with an unfinished college project in an engineer’s garage. It became the focus of a group of students at Tesla STEM High School and their mentors. What began as an after-school internship program with Aerojet Rocketdyne became an audacious attempt to become the first team ever to launch a liquid fuel propelled rocket at the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC). Along the way they became the first high school team ever accepted into this college and graduate level competition – in the advanced category. The Lawn Dart Saga follows the team as these high schoolers do learn rocket science and much more.
