SUMMER ROCKETRY CLUB
Rising 6th - 8th-grade girls and gender-expansive youth, alongside high school Junior Mentors dive into the fascinating world of aerospace engineering in this two-week program. Participants engage in fun, hands-on activities such as creating model space stations, using a robotic rover to see what it would be like to send a rover to space, building/launching rockets, and learning key physics and engineering concepts. The Summer Rocketry Program aims to cultivate leadership skills and instill confidence in STEM. A career panel of diverse women working in aerospace engineering provide inspiration and information about careers in this exciting field.
This two-week session also includes field trips to the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and the
Christa McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center.
The Summer Rocketry Program is supported in part by the
