Wenham Museum, Wenham, MA

I worked with the Wenham museum this summer, helping them set up a space theme exhibit in the museum along with hosting a rocketry building class.

The classes (two of them) were open to the public, with a limit of 20 per class/group.  Parents were encouraged to join their children, to help make this more of a family event than anything else.  We had ages as young as 5 and as old as 14, so there was quite a range of ages in a single group, adding new challenges.

Each child built a Whatchamacallit kit.  Since we only had 1 hour to build, with the intent of flying it that afternoon, I pre-assembled the engine mounts the night before.  This knocked a lot of time out of the build and also assured that the mount was completely dry before we tried to install it into the body tube.

Everything went wonderfully well and we actually had very nice weather to fly in!  In fact, most of the rocket prep was done in the shade as the sunny spots were a bit too warm!

If you see a picture of your child, in this photo album, and want a full size (high resolution) version, just drop me an email and I will get it right out to you.  Be sure to include the photo file name so that I know which photo you are talking about!
