Part 1 (November 11) The Basics: Explore advanced rocketry design and flight as well as build an advanced model rocket. Students will learn to build a strong and safe rocket. This class will take place at the Utah Museum of Natural History. Parents need not stay for the building workshop.
Part 2 (November 18) Launch Day!: With parents, meet at the Pony Express Test Range (PETR), used by the Utah Rocket Club for monthly launches. With the advice of club members, you will learn how to evaluate weather conditions, choose a safe place for launching, select an appropriate rocket motor, and properly prepare for the safe launch and recovery of your rocket. Your parents must drive you to and from the Test Range (west of Lehi) and stay with you for the launch day. Driving instructions will be provided upon registration. Participants will meet at the PETR site at 10:00 am.
