Explorations in Aerospace Engineering

Explorations in Aerospace Engineering

For Students Entering Grades 4th To 8th Fall 2017

From aerodynamics and orbital mechanics to multi-stage rockets and geosynchronous satellites, Launch campers delve into the academics and applications of aerospace engineering. Why do rocket and satellite parts need to be made both strong and light? What’s the difference between solid and liquid propellants? How did SpaceX successfully land a used first stage rocket motor?? Kids explore these and other topics as they build DIY projects that reinforce the science and technology behind this exciting field of engineering. The highlight of the week is a special field trip to New Jersey (via ferry) where campers fire off rockets under the supervision of Launch staff!

NOTE: Full-day Launch camps engage children mentally as well as physically. Half of each day is spent working on theme based projects and challenges. The other half of each day is spent participating in a combination of high energy games and STEM exploration activities. Campers go outdoors and should come with sneakers and sunscreen pre-applied. For additional information please refer to the Sample Camp Day schedule found on the Summer Camps page of this website.
