Youth Rocketry Camp

$200 (5 day session 1-5p)
OutdoorsSocially DistancedCOVID Compliant

We will enter the world of rocket science and flight with interactive sessions designed for grades 3-5. Youth can “reach for the sky” with fun, hands-on aerospace and engineering activities.

Students will build, test and launch their own rockets using a variety of fuels. The best part: students will take their rockets at the end of the week along with a launch kit for continued exploration at home.

Blast off for a week of adventures in aerospace, learning the basics of design, propulsion and telemetry!
Our camp sessions run 5 days from 1-5p at MacArthur Park in La Mesa.

Students perform simple science experiments to learn how rockets work and demonstrate Newton’s third law of motion. They will predict the motion of a rocket, perform experiments to verify and repeat the experiments to validate the results.

Program at-at-glance

We have distilled our 6-week after school program down to 5 exciting days of aerospace activities that are sure to be a hit with your student.

Day 1

General Rocketry / Forces of Flight

Students will learn basic principles of rocket design and systems, and build their very own launch vehicle.

Day 2

Air/Water Propulsion

What happens when we put compressed air and water inside our launch vehicles? They go up with a splash!

Day 3

Liquid Gas Propulsion

We are stepping up propulsion systems and launching our rockets with liquid/gaseous fuel – sure to be bang!

Day 4

Solid Fuel Propulsion

After testing other propulsion systems, we will be launching with solid fuel engines, blasting our launch vehicles to new heights!

Day 5

Telemetry and Recovery

We will test the aerodynamic principles of various launch vehicles with our own game of “Will it Fly”, while learning about flight path and vehicle recovery.
