Flathead Valley Rocket Rally
The Flathead Valley Rocket Rally is dedicated to the promotion of science and engineering to 8th grade students by applying the knowledge they have learned in class. It has seen incredible expansion since 2016 and continues to expand each year as more schools ask to join. During the months prior to the Rally, which is held in late May each year, the students learn about the physics behind flight and rockets while experimenting in various designs and making improvements in designs based upon flight tests. All of this is in preparation for the Rally where participating schools send teams of 2 – 4 students (depending on class size) to compete for awards in 5 judged categories.
