I was invited to
visit the Sharon, MA public library to present a rocket
building class with the Whatchamacallit kit. We had
about 15 young rocket scientists on hand and we spent part of
the afternoon building our rockets. The second half of
the afternoon was spent in the sun out on a field where I put
on a fun demonstration of various model rocket flights.
It was great fun
and we all had a wonderful time! While we were not able
to launch the Whatchamacallit kits that the kids built, I
offered them a pass to attend our club launch with CMASS.
It is my hope that they all are able to come out and get their
rockets in the air! Many thanks to Debbie Binner for
bringing this program together.
