Rocket Project powered by Sony

What: As part of the Rocket Project powered by Sony and Intel, Sony Electronics has pledged to donate $1 to ReadySetLaunch, Inc. for every new fan of the Sony Electronics Facebook page leading up to the April 2010 conclusion of the Rocket Project, up to $25,000. The Rocket Project challenges a select group of high school science students to use the power of Sony VAIO and Intel Core Processors to design, construct and launch a large-scale rocket into space. Sony and Intel are providing the students with a collection of CW, F, and Z-Series Sony VAIOs, and have paired the lucky students with a mentor to turn their aeronautical dreams into a reality. On April 12, 2010, the Rocket Project students will travel to the famous Black Rock Desert in Nevada to put their experiment to the ultimate test by launching their rocket as high as possible into the atmosphere.

Who: ReadySetLaunch is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing high school students of financially disadvantaged backgrounds with high quality college advising for free. Started by college students at Yale University and run by students for students, ReadySetLaunch works to level the playing field of college admissions by providing access to the crucial advising and mentoring that can make the difference in successfully navigating the often difficult process. ReadySetLaunch is devoted to turning its collective knowledge and experience into a resource for tomorrow s promising college students.
