For many years we
have been supporting and participating in the Aerospace
Festival hosted by the McAuliffe/Shepard
Discovery Center in Concord, NH.
This year, as in
years past, FlisKits hosted a build session for center
guests. In the session, guests get to build a model and
then launch it later the same day! We usually build the
Whatchamacallit as it goes together very quickly, is easy to
build for new rocketeers and is perfect for small fields.
New this year was
a short introduction to model rocketry lecture I gave about an
hour before our build. This allowed a dedicated time to
talk rocketry to a larger group and afford time for questions
to help everyone understand more about the hobby.
While traffic to
our booth was slow for the weekend, those who did attend
(including those who built and flew) all enjoyed their time
discovering or re-discovering model rocketry. A great
way to spend the weekend!
