Space Launch Program for High School Students

The Space Launch Program is for rising high school students in grades 9th through 12th. During this two week, full-day camp students will learn about the basics of space flight using a launch simulator, various rockets, and a weather balloon. Participants will learn how to design, build, and fly a model rocket they build from scratch. Participants will learn about the physics of rocket flight with the aid of the Kerbal Space Program, a rocket launch simulation software program. They will then send a weather balloon up to 30,000 feet and monitor the temperature and pressure of the atmosphere as the balloon rises. Then, using GPS, students will hopefully find and retrieve the capsule. They will also use a 3D printer, CAD, a GoPro Camera, and program sensors.
