Rocket Booster Camp! Online Science, Science Classes

  • Ages: Gradeschooler, Teen




Welcome to this exciting Space Technology and Rocket Launch Camp!

I run a popular ongoing class that meets weekly to discuss current events in space technology and rocket launches.

This camp was designed based on my weekly classes to get your learner up to speed on the most exciting events that have occurred in space technology and rocket launches over the past year and throughout the current “Space Race”.

Amazing events are happening almost daily in space technology and rocket launches and this camp will teach your learner how to stay up to date on new events in space exploration and technologies.

Just like a rocket booster provides the additional thrust needed for the orbiter to escape the gravitational pull of the earth and the boosters also assist in guiding the entire vehicle during initial ascent, this camp will get your learner off the ground and help launch them into the exciting world of rocket science and advances in space technology so they can safely orbit and navigate all of the incredible events that will be happening!

Let’s take a look at our camp schedule:

Day 1
Introduction to Rockets and the Current Space Industry.
Outline of Who the ‘Big Players’ are in Rocket and Space Technology.
