Rockets are a great way to blend the basics of aerodynamics, physics, and fun! In this introductory class we'll look at basic rocket design and understanding the forces at play that dictate how well rockets perform, then we'll test this knowledge by making a few different types of rockets and launching them!
This class is aimed at the budding rocket enthusiast, and aims to keep things accessible by using mostly household items to create our own rockets. The class culminates with making and launching a solid fuel rocket, capable of achieving altitudes that would make any astronaut dizzy.
Strap in, Cadet, we're about to shoot for the stars!
