This is the image for the news article titled SystemsGo Recognizes BISD 2018 Rocketry StudentsOn November 7, 2018, SystemsGo presented an achievement award to last year’s senior students from Brazoswood High School who participated in the Goddard-level rocket launch at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) in June of 2018. SystemsGo is an organization that provides the rocketry/aeroscience curriculum and sponsors rocket launches.

The students spent the previous year in high school designing and building a rocket to carry a research payload to an altitude of 80,0000-100,000 feet. This was the first year for students at Brazoswood High School to participate in the advanced Goddard program and after presenting their design and plan to NASA, only six teams were granted permission to attend this prestigious launch and only three were able to make it off the actual launchpad. While there were setbacks and anxiety filled moments along the way, the team persevered and as a result, their rocket launched and achieved the highest altitude out of its contenders, making it the top Student Researched and Developed (SRAD) hybrid rocket in the nation.

Upon returning home, the Goddard Rockets team received the inaugural PORT Award from Port Freeport for its outstanding achievement, along with a Dow Showcase and Town Hall at their Dow Diamond Center congratulating them on their success.

SystemsGo recognized students for their hard work and dedication by presenting them with banners that commemorated that achievement and success. The future of this amazing program remains bright and can only go up from here, but this would not have been possible without the generous support and dedication of our amazing BISD businesses, parents, teachers, and community members. BISD is so proud of these students in their commitment in setting the standard for educational excellence.
