Space + Flight Academy

 

This camp is recommended for students ages 6-12. 

 From our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of the solar system, this hands‐on program sends aspiring Mad Scientists on a quest for exploration! Explore the Four Forces of flight through an exciting series of demonstrations and activities involving kites, planes, rockets and more! Please note that the curriculum in this camp is based on rocketry and aerodynamics, completely separate from our NASA: Journey Into Space camp which focuses on astronomy. While campers do not need to participate in both to enjoy and learn from either camp, they are wonderful supplements to one another! 

 

In Space + Flight Academy camp, your child will: 

  • Build and fly their own kite to explore principles of lift and basic flight! 
  • Explore historic innovations such as the invention of the airplane. 
  • Build their very own Mad Science SkyBlazer rocket to take home!
  • Plan and execute their own space mission as we launch a model rocket!
  • Experiment with a variety of model rockets, including stomp rockets, water rockets and more! 
  • Build and try out a variety of paper and model airplanes to discover how planes stay in flight thanks to Bernoulli's Principle.  
  • Create their own Shuttle Copter to take home! 
  • Experiment with concepts of pitch, roll and yaw and how they contribute to a rocket's trajectory!   
  • And much, much more!
