Model Rockets for Kids

From Camp_2015_Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Description We build and launch model rockets with Kids. The propellant is blackpowder, the rockets reach 200-300 meters altitude and are re-usable. Younger kids may need assistance by a grown up when gluing the parts.

We have parts for 19 rockets, each kit will cost € 20. It takes about 45 mins to build one rocket. On day two we'll paint the rockets and on day three is launch day.

Questions

Q: Is it possible to pre-order a rocket kit?

A: No, please show up at Day 1 in the Family Village kitchen tent (the red one, right next to the railway).

Q: Where can I find a launchpad similar to the one we've used at the camp (3 long poles instead of a single pole)? Any construction manual available?
