Rocketry Program (Merrimack)
Back to Merrimack
for 2009! This rocketry program features a beginner class as
well as an advanced class, as we have done for the past few
years. In each session the beginners will each build and
fly 2 model rocket kits from FlisKits. In our 6 week
programs that gives us 2 weeks to build and 1 to fly. In
our 7 week programs we use that extra week to do lecture and
teach the kids more about rocketry.
Our advance class
often build 2 rockets, following the same schedule as the
beginner class, although the rockets they build are much more
complex. In some cases I will select a kit that is
complex enough to require all 5 build weeks to assemble.
In these sessions the kids only build the one rocket and
launch at the 2nd launch day. During the first launch
day they are invited to join the beginners to help me out
and/or bring any of their other rockets to fly for the day.
