Model Rocketry Project

The basics of model and mid‐powered rocketry will be covered along with proper rocket construction techniques. Experienced rocketeers can learn how to design and build rockets from scratch. These meetings will be an open workshop – bring your rocket to build and we’ll supply the glue, sandpaper, and other tools.

Cost: First and Second year participants purchase of a rocket kit from the program ($5). Others can purchase of a rocket kit ($15-$20).  Spray paint must be purchased separately
