Abilene Composite Squadron will be hosting the 23-3 Model Rocketry Academy on the weekend of 7 to 9 July 2023. 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 the 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.  Cots will be provided. Members need to bring bedding, air mattresses, or foam padding they would like.


Students must have completed the Curry Achievement.  

The cost for Students is $75.  Students will receive a model rocketry patch, Abilene MRA T-Shirt, all required rockets, and memories to last a lifetime.

If you have a question about any position or application please contact us at mra@abilenecap.org to apply.


Student Applications will be opening in March 2023

We are limiting the number of student slots during this activity to 24 students and supporting staff.  All cadets must have a full uniform and have earned the Curry Achievement.  All instructor staff must have earned the Model Rocketry Badge.
