Advanced Rocketry and Space Science
Entering Grades 5-8
Full Day Only-Includes Field Trip
Reach for the stars with the highest-flying Aviation Camp of all! Build two different high-performance rockets: Big Betty, an enormous flying model nearly 2' long, and the QEZ Boost Glider with booster pod and rocket-launched glider. Join the launch day field trip to blast each rocket skyward to altitudes approaching 500', then board the aircraft carrier USS Hornet for a behind-the-scenes look at the recovery ship used for the first astronauts to walk upon the Moon. Make a working refractor telescope, analyze real Mars images, fly high performance aircraft in the flight simulators and much more in a journey to infinity and beyond!
