3, 2, 1, Blast-Off!  Launching STEM with Model Rocketry

Energize your math and science curriculum! This workshop introduces how model rocketry can be used to teach STEM concepts in the classroom.

Participants will learn about the history of model rocketry and the National Association of Rocketry’s role in establishing it as a safe and educational hobby. Each participant will build a basic model rocket kit and learn how to successfully lead a class in a model rocket build and launch. Other activities include samples of STEM lessons that use model rockets and how to begin a model rocketry program at their school. There will be a special presentation on starting a model rocketry club and participating in the Team America Rocketry Challenge. We then travel to a nearby launch area to fly the rockets and learn how to collect data to use in STEM lessons. (WA State clock hours available at no charge).
