About Event


For this round, the ground will be divided into six different zones. From starting point, the participant will have to use the launcher and a rocket (made of water and plastic bottles) to launch the rocket. The participant will be given points according to the area in which the rocket lands. The area and the points that area holds will be visible during the event. One zone will be having zero points, three zones will be having 40, 60 and 80 points respectively and the remaining two zones will be having -20 and -30 points respectively. This round will give 3 attempts to each team. The total of 3 attempts will be considered.


For this round, a target will be declared. Points will be awarded according to the closeness of the distance from the target after the rocket touches the ground for the first time.


In this round, the participant will be required to deploy their rocket after launching. The time for which the rocket stays in air after the deployment will be counted. Parachute should be used and attached to the rocket. The parachute should open after the deployment.
