Blast Off with the PNA! Rocket Building Class
Wednesday, March 24, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday March 24, 2021
Two-part class – Wednesdays, March 17 & March 24, 3-4:30 pm + Rocket Launch TBD
Hey, middle schoolers (or middle schoolers at heart)! Wanna build a rocket and talk about space exploration with fellow rocketry enthusiasts?
Join high school seniors Henry and Aidan to build and blast off the Apogee Avion rocket. They’ll talk about the parts of the rocket and build it with you via Zoom. A safe group launch at a local park (with lots of space!) to be determined by weather and participant availability. They will also bring some of their bigger rockets to the launch.
Note: this class is designed as a 2-class series for middle school students interested in learning more about rockets, space exploration, and building a rocket, with minimal adult support. Younger students are welcome but may require additional support at home.
Cost: $5 for series
