Caroline Bennitt Atec in the Community

Atec was a corporate sponsor for the world record-breaking rocket launch at the Boy Scout SHAC Jam on October 9th, 2010. The successful launch of 3,130 rockets built by the scouts beat the previous record of 965, set in 2007, by a scout troop from Austin, Texas. Boy Scouts from all over the Sam Houston Area Council gathered at the Texas World Speedway near Bryan-College Station, Texas, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.

Atec builds precision rocket engine components that launched by NASA approximately once a month.
