End of Year Wrap Up 2023

Our team qualified for The American Rocketry Challenge (TARC) Nationals in Virginia as one of the top 100 in the nation. There we finished 17th in the US, out of almost 800 original entries, which also qualifies our team to apply for the NASA Student Launch Program next year.
Our Upper School team advanced to the international Global Finals in Kansas City and received 1st place in Instant Challenge and 7th place overall in their Secondary Technical category. This is the first time a Maharishi School team has won the Instant Challenge award.
We participated in multiple science fairs with achievements in each. At the Hawkeye State Science Fair, our students placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Honorable Mention in their categories and Poojita Mukadam received an invitation to observe at the International Science and Engineering Fair in Dallas.
Ishita Mukadam earned an invitation to the National Junior Symposium in Virginia to present her research project.
Our team in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition advanced to the Super-Qualifier round in the Iowa state tournaments.
Both our girls and boys teams advanced to the “Sweet 16” in the state competition.
Junior Ishita Mukadam earned a trip to the State Singles tournament and finished 7th, the first girl to place at State since 2011.
Our 17 multicultural seniors were accepted at universities across the United States, from UC-Berkeley and UC-Irvine to Purdue, Grinnell, Iowa and Iowa State, to Emerson College (Boston). Four will be attending Maharishi International University.
