Open to high schools and universities, this competition is comprised of multiple events. Events this year are target altitude where teams design and build a rocket to reach as close to 3000 feet as possible twice out of three attempts. The second event is the Mars Rover event where teams design a rover and the launch vehicle to launch the rover to over 1000 feet, release the rover, safely land and then the rover must perform specific maneuvers autonomously.

The competition changes each year. Prizes are cash award and plaques. Corporations can sponsor and create events for a small fee in future competitions.
