I am writing on behalf of the New England Fall Astronomy Festival set for Sept 30 and Oct 1 at the UNH Observatory in Durham, NH. One of the activities is rocket building and launches for kids. We're looking for volunteers to help kids put together a simple rocket (Estes FireStreak SST) and manage the launch field.
We have a five-rocket platform, a six pad launch controller and a big field. We also have all the kits, motors and other supplies for the building. We plan to do the rocketry activity on Saturday, Oct. 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and expect to run 3 building and launching sessions. We expect to have 25 kids per session for a total of 75 builds and launches.
We have a one volunteer so far from Maine Missile Math and Science Club for the activity but can certainly use more.
Thanks in advance for your consideration . We would greatly appreciate any help you all could lend. You can find out more about the festival at the following link.
Cheers, Tom/. Tom Cocchiaro, event co-founder, (603) 828-2447.
