Rocketry Workshop December 27

Build rockets and launch them.

This class has two components.

In stage one we will go over the basics of rockets and how they work and then construct rockets from straws and paper. Launching the rockets will be done using the scientific method to see how launch angle and thrust affect the distance flown.

Stage two of the event will put teams together to build model rockets and launch them in the park nearby.

The event will be held at St Anthony Jr-Sr High School and will start at 10 am. Entry fee is $20.00 per family.

This class is the first of a series. We aim to fire larger rockets in the future if interest permits. We also are starting a National Association of Rocketry Charter to allow launching of really big stuff. So come down and hang out even if your not interested in participating in this beginners class.
