3...2...1...Liftoff!  Rocketry Day with Pack 33

STEM in Scouting

Scouting is a great way to introduce your Scout to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. We will learn how to build rockets that are stable, aerodynamic, and fast. How does a rocket work? What goes into a good design? How can I make my rocket go higher?  Hands on building and experimentation lead the way to answers.

Our Air Rockets

We build our model rockets from plastic drink bottles with a safe foam nose cone and plastic fins.

We use a compressed air launcher system and a custom designed and built launch controller so that your scout can launch his or her own rocket while having safe central control from an adult.

Range Safety Rules

A few easy but important safety rules must be followed for everyone to have a fun and safe day. These include:

Never point a rocket launcher at anyone or anything, keep them pointed to clear sky even if no rocket is loaded on it.

Follow the directions of the launcher's supervising adult.

Never lean over a rocket on its launcher!

If uncertain what to do, contact the range safety officer or any Cub Scout leader.

Five of the original 7 Mercury astronauts were Scouts: Scott Carpenter, Gordon Cooper, Gus Grissom, Wally Schirra and the first American in space - Alan Shepard
Did You Know?  Neil Armstrong was an Eagle Scout!  You could be an Eagle scout too!
