SystemsGo is a proven innovative high school rocketry/aerospace 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 unmanned aerial vehicles for research or industrial applications. Advanced students develop hybrid rockets capable of lofting scientific payloads to 50,000 feet at White Sands Missile Range.
The program is now used in high schools in Texas, New Mexico, Oregon, Colorado, and Abu Dhabi UAE. Graduates work in leadership positions at NASA, SpaceX, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and other prestigious industries and schools across the country.
For SystemsGo students, it really is rocket science!

Happy Anniversary to SystemsGo!
“Lighting a candle” to 20 years of launching careers
While the genesis of the current SystemsGo program traces back to June 1996 in Brett Williams’ Principles of Technology class at Fredericksburg High School, the program’s current status took shape on June 16, 2003 when a board formed Ignite, a 501(c)(3) non-profit (name later changed to SystemsGo). Ever since, the sky’s the limit!
