On Feb. 5, registration for the AIAA Rocket City Invitational will be open to any high school team in Alabama. I'm happy to say we have enough volunteers and classroom capacity to raise the cap to 18 teams. We're still restricting registration to one team per school.

Through the generous sponsorship of Jacobs Space Exploration Group and ERC, the top 4 teams will receive the following cash prizes for their schools' Scholars' Bowl programs:

1st: $1000
2nd: $750
3rd: $500
4th: $250
