SystemsGo is an innovative high school rocketry/aeroscience curriculum that uses project-based learning to teach science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM); to develop skills in teamwork, problem-solving, and leadership; and to encourage careers in the engineering industries.
Students design and develop remotely operated vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles for research or industrial applications. Advanced students develop sounding rockets capable of lofting scientific payloads to 100,000 feet for collaborative research with universities, ultimately launching their vehicles at White Sands Missile Range.
The program has been featured on NBC Nightly News, and is certified by The Space Foundation. It is now used in high schools in Texas, New Mexico, and Oregon. Graduates work in leadership positions at NASA, SpaceX, Boeing, and other prestigious industries and schools across the country.
For SystemsGo students, it really is rocket science!
