Casey Everett, 13, is participating in the Team America Rocketry Challenge through his school in Colorado Springs, Colo. He likes the options that come with model rocketry. "Whatever you do affects its flight," he said. "It's not just to promote the educational aspects, but to get kids interested in rocketry and then interested in scientific careers," said Dave Virga, president of the Colorado Springs Rocket Society.
