The winners of NASA’s First Nations Launch High-Power Rocket Competition in April were announced last month and a team of University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa students claimed five awards—the most of any of the 13 participating teams from the U.S. and Canada. These included 1st place for oral presentation, third place for the grand prize award and written report, and awards for the spirit and aesthetics categories. Congrats to the team and their mentors!
