Beginner Rocketry

< RETURN TO COURSES

Rocketry is an excellent way for young children to learn math and science concepts, vocabulary skills, critical thinking and problem solving and, the importance of collaborative teamwork. Students will learn to construct model rockets, identify each part of the rocket, follow directions, read diagrams, follow safety procedures and work carefully and precisely, with the understanding that each step is critical to the successful launching of their rocket. This hands on activity will inspire your child to be “spaced out”!

Ms. Dimino has been teaching children the joy of building model rockets since 1997. In her course, students learn how model rockets work (science), components of a rocket and their function, construction (math/science), how to assemble the rocket (following directions) and how to appreciate their hard work once they launch successfully.
