Launching into competition
Forsyth Central High students competing in national rocket challenge
Ahead of an upcoming national competition, a team of Forsyth County students could be spotted this week measuring temperature, wind and humidity, all aiming at a perfect launch. A team of students from Forsyth Central High School is headed to the national Team America Rocketry Challenge starting on May 12 in Washington D.C. It will be the second time Central has made the national competition in the three years the team has existed. “The competition this year is to fly a model rocket that has been flown before to a height of 775 feet and it comes up and down within a timeframe of 41-43 seconds,” said team member Eric Gangwish.
