This has to be one of the most incredible things ever to increase kids
enthusiasm and interest in science, for schools, in the last 30 years.

Yes it is nearly that good.  But very similar activities (without the
national contest) have been going on at local schools for decades.  What
this industry needs is 1000% growth of this known good and successful
activity.

Model Rocketry *IS* good.

I heard from a High School senior whom I mentored for the contest. He and his
team did not qualify for the flyoff, but last evening he called me to chat and
say he had decided to major in aerospace engineering.

Triple the shock cord! Use more epoxy! Always fly straight up- you need the
exercise anyway.
