Rocketry

Build and launch air, water, and black powder model rockets this summer. Using a combination of computer models and practical tests camp participants will learn about aerodynamics, calculating the altitude of an airborne rocket and assembling propulsion systems. Working in teams, they will design, build and launch their rockets in a friendly competition.

We learn:

Forces (Drag, Thrust, Weight, Lift)
Newton’s Laws
Stability
Construction
Center of Gravity & More

Rocket Types:

Water Rockets
Air Rockets
Multi-Stage Rockets
Helicopter Recovery Rockets
