Citrus College Takes First Place at FAR 1030-5R Rocketry Competition!

The ISC would like to congratulate one of our STEM students, Yesenia Gonzalez. She was part of the Rocket Owls Genesis team that competed in the Friends of Amateur Rocketry (FAR) 1030-5R Rocketry Competition. Citrus College’s own Genesis team took first place in the competition when their rocket flew closest to the 10,000 ft. mark.
