3..2..1...LIFTOFF! TinkRers will have a blast as they build and launch their very own fully-functional and reusable rockets in this special camp focused on flight. The TinkRers will assemble all of the pieces of their rocket kits step by step, personalize them using paint and vinyl, and then
watch as they soar over 500 feet in the air! But how does a rocket fly up that high? Well, the TinkRers will learn all about the science behind Newton’s Laws and how they allow a rocket to lift off the ground, and they will participate in exciting experiments that mimic Newton’s Laws in
action during a rocket launch.

The TinkRers will learn about the history behind rockets and space shuttles and about the mechanism of how model rocket engines work to propel the rockets into the air. They will also experiment to see just how high different engine strengths can propel the rockets (weather
permitting). Of course, the TinkRers will be able to launch their rockets multiple
times throughout the week, and we will even attach a camera to an instructor rocket to see the view from 500 feet in the air! This camp is perfect for TinkRers who like to shoot for the stars, so come fly with us!
