This summer have a blast exploring aerospace engineering. Design and build different types of “sprockets” (aka – safe, practical rockets) out of household materials. Investigate ways to generate thrust and lift so that your sprocket can climb higher. Predict and track the trajectory of sprocket flight. Learn how to engineer recovery systems and landing devices. Don’t let anyone tell you that this isn't rocket science!

Activities: create your own stomp rocket apparatus and parachute for a toy army soldier

Highlights: bottle rocket competition
