Here's YOUR chance to get the ultimate STEM experience you've been looking for!
It's that time of year again! The St. Croix Rocketry Association, Inc. was founded to aid students between 6th and 12th grade with interests in STEM and raise awareness for the many opportunities available in science, technology, engineering, and math, as well as the arts! Now is your chance to be a part of this enriching yet rigorous program. We are getting ready to start again for the 2020-2021 school year, so for more information, call us today or access our online membership form!
ABOUT SCRA, INC.
Our Island Roots
Here at St. Croix Rocketry Association, Inc., we are driven by a single goal; to use STEM as the stepping stone to a better and brighter future. The SCRA is the main outlet for connecting rocketry, robotics, and STEM to the Virgin Islands community and abroad. We strive to continue being active in our community as well as teaching and nurturing our future scientists, engineers, and astronauts.
WHAT WE DO
Making a difference, one student at a time.
St. Croix Rocketry Association, Inc. is in the business of changing and shaping students lives by using STEM. The work we do at our Non-Profit Organization is aimed at providing different activities for students, such as model rocket design/construction, robotics/engineering projects, competing in national STEM competitions, exploring and observing natural/geological wonders (i.e. volcanoes, hot springs, deserts, caverns) and so much more. We make sure every student is empowered by creating opportunities for individuals and as well as the community.
After launching our first rocket in 1999, we knew rocketry was going to be our passion. From model rocketry to high powered rocketry, we teach our students everything they need to know from design and construction to safety and precautions. Our students have worked so hard that they've competed in the Team America Rocketry Challenge for over 7 seven years and will continue to aim for the gold.
At St. Croix Rocketry Association, Inc., robotics became a key part of we do. Because of how much the world relies on robotics in this day and age, we wanted to teach students about how important and powerful robotics can be in our daily lives. Our students have competed twice in both the regional and national SeaPerch competition and will continue to master the concepts of this evolving form of technology.
With our programs, engineering and computer programing play a huge role. Our students learn from the most skilled professionals about building satellites, software programing, and much more. With these skills, we've competed in the Small Satellites for Secondary Schools (S4) competition where our students built a satellite and launched it in a high powered rocket in Blackrock, NV. Learn more about this by getting in touch with our team today.
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new concepts to continuously educate our students. When we aren't doing rocketry or robotics, we like to show our students the natural world around us. From caves hundreds of feet below the earth's surface to volcanoes thousands of feet above sea level, we try to do it all. We take STEM very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact.
