Brief Description Team-build a high-power model rocket and launch it at Poker Flat Research Range. Take the knowledge of how rockets work and how they are used to study the aurora back into your K-12 classrooms
Rocket Science course objective The goals of this course are to introduce model rocketry to teachers as a method of studying physics and developing skills of experimental observation. We will study the basic concepts of stability, component placement, drag, propulsion, recovery systems and experimentally measure stability and drag. Teacher teams will build and launch their own high-power model rocket.
