The Space Grant Midwest High-Power “Efficient Supersonic” Rocket Competition coming May 2019

The MnSGC and Tripoli MN, a local high-power rocket club, are pleased to announce the 2018-2019 Space Grant Midwest High-Power Rocket Competition which will be held on May 18 & 19, 2019. In this competition college student teams are challenged to design, build, and fly a high-power rocket which can go supersonic, but do so as “efficiently” as possible. Team presentations about rocket designs will be held (probably at Split Rocks Entertainment Center in Wyoming, MN) on Saturday, May 18, 2019, starting in the late afternoon and going into the evening.  The competition launches will take place all day (weather permitting) at the Tripoli MN high-power rocket launch site outside North Branch, MN, on Sunday, May 19, 2019. Spectators are welcome to attend all events.  For more information, go to
