20th Anniversary of Rockets for Schools
May 12, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join us at Spaceport Sheboygan for a fun filled day! Rockets For Schools provides an opportunity for all U.S. students in grades 6 through 12 to learn about aerospace technology, scientific experiments, and space launches. Student teams construct a rocket equipped with a powerful motor that lifts it to high altitudes. Besides constructing their rocket, students design a payload experiment to fly in their rocket. In addition, students give an oral presentation and prepare a visual display of their experiment to exhibit at the event.
Spaceport Sheboygan has been Wisconsin’s home of Rockets For Schools since its inception in 1995. Each year, more that 300 students from Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa and Michigan have participated in successful launches at Spaceport Sheboygan. From 2001 through the present, students from Sheboygan County have also been involved in an elementary-level rocket launch.
