There are two roads leading to TARC. One is a long and treacherous one, full of potholes and other hazards. However, it is simple and enticing. Take a bunch of kids, have them build some rockets and see if they can win a contest with a design of their own. That is the way chosen by many teams. They choose to approach TARC is a casual way, learning from their own mistakes along the way. Most of these teams end up as rocketry roadkill!

At Heavenly Hobbies, we think there is a better way to TARC, the road of analysis and education. Consequently, attached below you will find a collection of articles and tools designed to help you along the road to the Finals.

Good Luck!!
