Winter Break Blast Off! Rocket Building Class
Wednesday December 30, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
One event on Wednesday December 30, 2020 at 2:00 pm
Two-part class – Dec 23 & Dec 30, 2-3:30 pm
Hey, middle schoolers (or middle schoolers at heart)! Wanna build a rocket and talk about space exploration with fellow rocketry enthusiasts? High school seniors Henry and Aidan have recommended the Estes Alpha III rocket, will talk about the parts of the rocket and build it with you via Zoom. 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.
No experience or special tools needed. Free to attend class, must purchase rocket prior to class. Recommended beginner rocket: Estes Alpha III (available on Apogee and Amazon). Limited to eight spots.
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.
Oh no! This class is full!
