Rocketry Team Qualifies for National Finals!
Flying their rocket "American Eagle," the Jordan Rocketry team's qualifying score of 41 was among the 100 best out of 713 participating teams nationwide. They are the only team out of six schools in the Durham area and one of only three teams from NC that qualified for the finals. The team bounced back from an earlier setback which forced them to rebuild part of their rocket in order to make qualifying flights before the deadline.
Team members are Nikolas Kreiling, team leader, Millicent Blivin, Colin Eimers, Rachel Hill, Nicholas Holmes, Andrew Kelly, Michael Lawson, Thomas Morris, Amar Patel and Sam Taylor. While not officially on the team, Lauren Phillips provided a beautiful painted eagle on the team’s rocket.
