The Junior High-Power Team (JHPT) is a mock team of the High-Power Team that competes in the Spaceport America Cup. The rocket is aimed at achieving an apogee of 10,000ft, holding a 2kg payload, just like the HPT does for the Spaceport America Cup. The JHPT provides students with experience with high-power rockets and aerospace industry practices through hands-on design and manufacturing. The goal is for members of this team to be well seasoned and fully prepared to compete at Spaceport America in the High-Power Team.
