Fly Drones and Launch Rockets!
Up, up and away! In this new offering, students will learn about two aerospace technologies. In the morning, students will learn about rockets. We will learn rocket building techniques by building small, launchable model rockets. We will test our designs with a flight day at the end of the week. Students will also learn the basics of orbital flight using computer simulations. In the afternoon, students will learn how to fly drones. We will learn basic flight techniques and then test our skills with a series of obstacles courses. We may get to try out some drone racing too. At the end of the camp, each camper will bring home their own drone and a few model rockets.
Drones and Rockets Camp is led by Camp Director Mr. Matt Gehlhoff, a current SSSAS faculty member. Please contact Mr. Gehlhoff with any camp-specific questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
