Animas High rocket team has the right stuff for national competition

Rocketry is a science of precision, patience and two uncracked eggs
Cloudbusters, from left, Alma Wolf, Grady James, Mason James and Riley Amos, find the center of gravity of a rocket. Variables, such as temperature and humidity, are fed into computer software that includes rocket characteristics, such as center of gravity, to give the team an estimated height for a launch. Adding as much accurate data as possible leads to more accurate predictions by the software.
To help

On May 2, Grassburger, 726 Main Ave., will donate 10 percent of each meal – for customers who request it – to the CloudBusters, which is looking to raise $10,000 to attend the Team America Rocketry Challenge in Washington, D.C. Customers who wish to support the team should tell the employee at the register they want 10 percent of their meal to be donated to the CloudBusters.
In addition, the CloudBusters have a gofundme page at https://www.gofundme.com/rocket-team-makes-nationals-in-dc.
As of Tuesday, the team has raised $3,170.
