Rocketry
For the last 19 years, Newark Memorial High School and Newark Junior High School have formed Rocketry Clubs. The students in these clubs break up into teams and under the watchful eye of their advisors, they create rockets from scratch that can fly up to 1,000 feet in the air carrying an egg, and land so gently the egg doesn't crack. Their goal to be one of only 100 teams in the United States to be invited to the annual American Rocketry Challenge held in The Plains Virginia each year. Our Newark teams have excelled in this competition.

Newark has sent 15 teams over 8 different years to the American Rocketry Challenge.

They are one of only 15 schools in the nation to win this completion.

The NEF has provided nearly $10,000 in support the NUSD Rocketry program.
Robotics
The Newark Memorial High School Robotics Club is fairly new to the robotics scene, but is starting to make a name for itself by taking down multiple well established and funded programs from around Alameda county in Robotics competitions. Over the last couple of years the folks at Triple Ring Technologies have mentored the students providing much needed expertise and guidance for the students to help them rapidly advance their capabilities.

Both the Robotics and Rocketry programs now operate in the Star Academy at Newark Memorial High School.
