Model Rocketry Academy
It's time to get excited about Model Rocketry!
Announcing Abilene Composite Squadron's first annual Model Rocketry Academy
4-6 March 2022
Abilene Composite Squadron will be hosting the First Annual Model Rocketry Academy on the weekend of 4-6 March 2022. This event will be based out of Clyde High School and will be a joint venture between CAP and the Scouts of America. The goal is to provide a STEM opportunity for Cadets/Scouts to earn their rocketry badges. This year we will only offer the basic class. However, graduates may be invited back next year for either the Advanced Class or to be Instructors.
Cadets and Scouts will receive a t-shirt and have the opportunity to make and take home a fizzy flyer, Goddard Rocket, Estes Alpha III Rocket, and an Elite Egg Launching Rocket. Cadets and Scouts will be required to demonstrate safe operation and have successful launch and recovery of each rocket in order to graduate from the academy.
Graduates of this academy will meet Civil Air Patrol requirements to wear the Model Rocketry Patch and Badge.
