Lovejoy Gifted Association Rocket Blast Off – Fall 2016
In the Spring of 2016 we had a great time building and launching model rockets. It was so much fun we decided to do it again!
Building and flying rockets is an excellent Enrichment/STEM activity. All Lovejoy students in the 3rd – 6th grade are welcome to participate. Younger and older kids may participate at their parents discretion.
No experience is necessary, we will have experts on hand to help build and launch.
Our build event is November 2nd, 6 pm – 7:30 pm at Sloan Creek cafeteria – adult supervision is required for both the build event and launch. Please no more than 4 kids per adult. Adults can order and build a rocket too!
We have two launch event dates. The first will be Sunday, November 6th at the LHS parking lot from 12 – 2pm. The second opportunity will be at the Dallas Area Rocket Society public open launch on November 19 10 am – 4 pm (Public Launch with Dallas Area Rocket Society at Gunter. Field Info).
There are two different rocket kits available, a beginner kit and an advanced kit.
The cost for a rocket kit and engines for 2 launches is:
Beginner (Level 0) Generic E2X Rocket – LGA members $12 / Non-members $22 per rocket
Advanced (Level 2) TBD Rocket – LGA members $13 / Non-members $23 per rocket
The Advanced rocket will require more time to build than is available at our build event and will have to be completed at home.
Its not too late to Join LGA for this school year and get the discount!
The rocket ordering deadline WAS October 19.
