Aerospace Interest Group

2015 Aerospace Interest Group


Would you like to learn how to build and launch a model rocket?  Any youth 4th grade and above is invited to participate in the Aerospace Interest Group sponsored by Boone County ISU Extension. 


On Saturdays, May 2 & 16, the aerospace groups will meet to build rockets and do experiments about launch, forces, and flight.  The beginners group will meet from 9 - 10:15 am at the Boone County Extension Office (under the bakery in downtown Boone.)


On May 30, beginners will learn the basics of finishing and painting model rockets and how to safely launch rockets. On Sunday, June 14, each member will launch his/her rocket and each rocket will be judged on quality of workmanship.  The May 30 and June 14 meetings are at the Boone County Fairgrounds.


Pre registration and payment of a supply fee of $20 are required.   The beginners group is limited to 18 participants.
