Durham, NC 27705
ActivitiesWe are starting from the ground up - working our way through the NARTREK Cadet Program, with the intention of joining the TARC program in time (kids are entering 8th grade next year - so high school for TARC). We have monthly meetings where I (Katelyn) prepare info to learn - safety, model rocket ...everything (I am following your curriculum), even some math (calculus and physics!) and we have had a handful of successful launches (and some fails), using engine sizes A and B, with parachute recovery so far. We live in the triangle area of NC, and as other clubs are too far to join, we thought we would start our own!
LaunchesWe have just used a friend's field for launches over the winter, but as our rockets grow, we are looking for larger areas to safely launch from. There is a club that uses land about 45 min from here that we may be able to use. I can update this when I know more.
HPRWe are not using high power rockets just yet.
MeetingsMeetings are usually held at my home (contact for address), but are now held virtually on zoom. The kids all have their own log books, and one 3d printed his own rocket and launched it! (It did launch! But it did not fly far.)
