Highland Road Park Observatory
SPRING ROCKET CAMP
Tuesday, 26 March and Wednesday, 27 March
8:00 am to 1:00 pm both days
Rockets: Alpha III and Quark
Attention, parents! Your children can learn about propulsion and flight at HRPO’s Spring Rocket Camp!
For centuries humanity wondered what it would be like to fly, and then fly into space. Of course, it's no longer fantasy due to the hard work of the Wright brothers, Robert Goddard and others—but the thrill of watching (or being inside) a hot-air balloon, helicopter, jet, rocket or spacecraft never seems to leave us.
At Spring Rocket Camp, children will learn a brief history of flight as well as the basics of rocket science. They will also learn the safety procedures required for a safe launch and recovery. Then—the children will build and fly two rockets (materials supplied)! After the flights, the children take their rockets home.
This year at Spring Rocket Camp, the rockets are the Alpha III and the Quark! Children will need to bring a sack lunch and drink that does not require refrigeration. They will also need to bring a hat and sunscreen.
Parents can register in person at the HRPO. Parents can also register using the form below, or online at Webtrac.
Registration is not complete, regardless of payment, until HRPO has received a filled “Registration Form” and signed copy of the “Rules and Regulations.” We also are providing ahead of time the “Sign In Log,” which must have the DL#s of any adult allowed to pick up the child. All three of these forms have links below.
Tell all the other parents you know, and don't wait until the last minute to register!
