Rocket Pioneers:

Discover the 2-day bottle rocket program led by passionate local high schoolers. Dive into aerodynamics and propulsion with hands-on sessions, free for all young rocket scientists. Choose from 3 mid-July weekends. Ignite your curiosity now!



The following is the schedule for each session. Halfway through building their rockets, the Pioneers get a snack break to recharge and continue. Saturday is an introductory session and if you decide to come again on Sunday, you can follow a more advanced path.


We commence the program with an explanation of aerodynamics and propulsion by using simple demonstrations and bottle rockets.


Every pioneer picks a bottle that they want to launch and transforms them into fully fledged rockets with the assistance of the helpers


After fully constructing their rocket and understanding the process of thrust, each pioneer fills up their rocket with fuel and pulls the string to make it soar
