In this class, students will learn to build and launch their own rockets using common, everyday materials. We will experiment with multiple design, building, and recovery techniques, and use 3D design software to design and 3D print some of the parts for your models. These rockets are cheap to make so it removes the anxiety of “doing it wrong”. This is your chance to build it and see what happens when we launch our rockets! Finally, we may have time to use simulations to experiment with real rocket variables and try to find out what it takes to move an object beyond earth’s gravity and possibly to other planets. ($75 course fee)
Rocket Builder Design Camp
For Rising 6th – 8th Grade Students
Your Summer of Discovery Awaits
MITY’s ExplorSchool provides rising 6th-8th grade students a unique opportunity to investigate new topics and dive deeper into their passions at a level that is challenging and motivating. Intellectually curious students take two classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, enabling them to explore different disciplines, experience things that are not possible within a normal school setting, and forge new friendships.
