Rocketry Camp

Entering Grades 5-9
We are excited to continue launching a co-ed Rocketry Camp to be held in our Borisenok Family Science Center at Albany Academy for Girls. Join us for a week or two! Each week will consist of two small launches testing specific variables. Each Friday parents will be invited to watch the rockets we build launch into the sky. These programs are designed to grab the interest of campers new to rocketry as well as challenge those with prior experience including campers who attended last summer!

Week One-How it all Started
Week One will take an exciting in depth look at rockets. We will study the modern history of rocketry and the Science behind rockets. We will work on individual and group projects. One project will entail designing and making a rocket to carry a raw egg with the goal of it returning in one piece! 

Week Two-Planet Discoveries
Join us for another exciting week of rocketry. We will research the discoveries made from satellites on the planets, dwarf planets and so much more. We will work on both individual and group rockets with emphasis in designing finless rockets from scratch.
