Boys & Girls Club - April & May 2011

Due to the short nature of our sessions and the small size of the classes, I decided to combine the April and May photo albums into one.

Our April session was still lightly attended, but we did have 4 kids for advanced and 2 for beginner (including a new face!).

Since both classes are fun at the same time, I have to keep in mind the rockets that we will build, as well as the skills of the students.  For the advanced class we went with the Pheord X150 red-neck pickup saucer.  For the beginner class we went with the Bull's Eye, but with a twist.  In addition to the standard kit, I added a tube coupler and a 9" length of BT-70 body tube so that the kids could make a Bull's Eye that was twice as tall as a stock one.

The other oddity with this session is that April has FIVE Friday's, yet we only got TWO weeks in this session....  The first Friday was actually a part of last months session.  I was out of town for the second one and the last Friday falls at the end of Spring break.

With that in mind, we decided to use the 2 weeks to BUILD our rockets with the intent of flying them during the May session next month.

Our May session had 5 kids, all building the micro Dead Ringer kit.  We had MORE than enough time to get the model built.  Unfortunately we only had 2 kids flying them at the launch and only one model from the April build made it out to the field.  I will have to see about getting these other models in the air with the next school year rocketry sessions!
