Wanted... student rocketeers
Registration for the 2011 edition of the world's largest rocket competition is open now through November 30. The Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) will accept up to 750 student teams in grades 7-12 from any U.S. school, home school or non-profit youth organization.
The annual rocket contest, sponsored by the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), challenges teams of three to 10 students to design and build a rocket that will climb to 750 feet with a raw egg payload and stay aloft for 40 to 45 seconds. The egg must then return to earth unbroken. The 2011 contest rules and registration information are available at www.rocketcontest.org.
"The Team America Rocketry Challenge is a vital part of our industry's outreach to young people," said Marion C. Blakey, AIA president and CEO. "TARC provides a great opportunity for students to work with scientists and engineers and learn in an exciting and fun environment."
The top 100 TARC team finalists will be notified April 8 that they have earned a spot in the May 14 competition just outside of Washington, DC. Student participants compete for $60,000 in prizes, scholarships and a trip to the 2011 international air show in Paris for an international "Fly-Off" with student teams from France and the UK.
Coastal Cleanup Day
In 1985, California expanded an idea that began in Oregon the year before. The California Coastal Commission started the first California Coastal Cleanup Day, inviting volunteers to visit their local beach and help clean up the debris that had accumulated. 2,500 people showed up for that first cleanup, launching what has become an extensive statewide movement for cleaner beaches.
Now in its 26th year, California Coastal Cleanup Day has become the largest and one of the most successful volunteer events in the state and the nation. According to the California Coastal Commission, "80,622 volunteers took part in the 25th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day in 2009, representing an all-time high in volunteer participation and marking a 60 percent increase in volunteers over the past three years. Those participants removed close to 1.4 million pounds of debris from hundreds of cleanup locations, creating an enormous one-day impact."
SAVE breakfast gets personal
Getting up for breakfast just might be one of the best things you do this year. Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments (SAVE) is hosting their 8th Annual Breakfast Eye Opener on Friday, September 24 to raise awareness about the far reaching effects of domestic abuse.
"Something like domestic violence, it's often closer than you know," says SAVE Development Officer Debra Watanuki. It could be happening to a friend, colleague, cousin, or parent of your child's friend. People generally operate on the thought that bad things happen to other people, that domestic violence is a private matter and personal concern, none of your business. But the Eye Opener focuses on the "outside" individual, you, because directly or indirectly, domestic violence impacts and affects us all.
