Rocketry

a group of kids holding paper rockets

Girl with Paper Rocket Rocketry is a project that is a blast and can turn anyone into a budding rocket scientist! Youth learn the history of rockets and knowledge of physics and aerodynamics is gained through the construction and flight of model rockets powered by air andwater. Participants will be able to learn through experimentation using the Engineering Process.  Aerospace is a similar project that expands beyond just rockets to explore gliders, planes and other flying objects.
