Model Workshops

Students building model boost gliders and rockets

Model workshops are a mainly hands-on learning experience for students. Students will apply their knowledge from the instructors’ presentations  and design  model gliders and egg-drop landers. Each student is provided with materials and, with on-line assistance from the staff, builds the models.  We’ll have  you launch your models at home with filming the flights.
