Abilene Composite Squadron will be hosting the 22-2  Model Rocketry Academy on the weekend of 6-8 July 2022. This event will be based out of Clyde High School. The goal is to provide a STEM opportunity for Cadets to earn their rocketry badges. This cycle we will only offer the basic class. However, graduates may be invited back next year for either the Advanced Class or to be Instructors.

All students and staff will receive an academy t-shirt.  All students will have the opportunity to make and take home a fizzy flyer, Goddard Rocket, Estes Alpha III Rocket, and an Elite Egg Launching Rocket. Cadets who demonstrate safe operation and have successful launch and recovery of each rocket to graduate will earn and receive a Model Rocketry Patch.

Honor Graduates even have an opportunity to earn the coveted Leadership Pin.

Graduates of this academy will meet Civil Air Patrol requirements to wear the Model Rocketry Patch and Badge.

The cost for this activity will be $75 for students and $50 for staff.

Lodging will be inside classrooms of Clyde High School.  We are currently trying to source cots, but they may not be available. Members are encouraged to bring any bedding, air mattresses, cots, or foam padding they would like.
