Rockets!

Students will be assembling a kit rocket. They will learn how fin shapes, engine size, and body length affect rocket flight. Together we will look at rockets that have been successfully used in space exploration and use simulators to explore design possibilities. Students will then design a custom rocket, assemble it using their plans, and decorate their rocket. On the final day of camp, we will launch our rockets.

This camp will have the opportunity to swim on Friday if weather and time permits.
