Congratulations to four Oakton students who launched a high-powered rocket to 34,195 feet, higher than many airplanes!  These students formed an independent rocketry team, Washington Area Rocketry Program (WARP).  They have aspirations of creating a rocket that can go to space before graduation!  Way to go Cougars!  More information can be found reading this WTOP article.
