The SystemsGo Aeroscience program started in Fredericksburg High School in 1996 under the direction of teacher Brett Williams. The innovative SystemsGo Studies science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curriculum uses inquisitive learning based on a problem and project-based model to invoke and stimulate skills in design, development, testing, analysis, and innovation.
The student teams design and build 8-foot and taller rockets. First-year students attempt to send a one-pound payload one mile high. Second-generation projects send rockets past the speed of sound.
