    Ingraham-rocketsIngraham High School’s Rocket Club placed third in the nation in its best-ever finish at the Team America Rocketry Challenge.

    The teams were tasked with building a rocket that could carry one raw egg 800 feet into the air and return it to Earth safely within 46 to 48 seconds.

    Ingraham’s Rocket Club teams placed third and 21st in the competition this month in The Plains, Virginia. The third-place team earned $12,500 in scholarships and $1,000 for the school, plus a flag that orbited in NASA’s newest Orion spacecraft.
    Ingraham has sent 12 teams to the finals in the past nine years, and four of those placed in the top 10. Of 700 teams that entered this year, 100 made the finals. An Alabama high school placed first, and Bellevue’s Newport High School placed second. Ingraham-rockets
