Rocketry

About Rocketry Camp

We will introduce your children to the science and fun of rocketry! During the week of camp, we will build a variety of rockets using air, water, and chemical propellants. Participants will build their own launch platform to take home, along with the four rockets they will build during the week and their own video of all of the action! In addition, they will learn about the math and science behind rocketry by using a simulation software to predict the flight of rockets they build, along with the Kerbal Space Program software to simulate and launch life size rockets to orbit and beyond!

This camp is for children ages 11 to 14.

A Few Details

Rocketry Basics

Building:  Your children will use tools and materials to build their own rockets and then launch them.

Purposeful: By using hands-on tools and skills, students will gain a better understanding of how technology works in real world applications, AND your children take home their launch platform along with the rockets they build.

Skills Taught/Practiced

  • Critical thinking
  • Problem-solving
  • Creativity
  • Teamwork and collaboration
  • Basic building concepts

What else?

In addition, your children will learn about the math and science behind rocketry by using a simulation software to predict the flight of rockets they build, along with the Kerbal Space Program software to simulate and launch life size rockets to orbit and beyond!

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for our rocketry camp. Keep in mind your children will work with their hands to create and build their own rockets and their own launch pad.

What's Next?

After taking our rocketry course we try to point our 11 to 14 year old children in the direction of learning more building courses though our mBot Robotics course, Drone Camp. Many of the same content is offered through our sister company Young Makers Lab.
