3 “CAP MODEL ROCKETRY PROGRAM” What is Model Rocketry? It is the designing, building, and flying of small rockets made of paper, plastic, balsa wood or any other non- metallic product. It is “rocket science” in miniature. The same designing, building, and launch operations skills needed to launch “real” rockets apply to model rocketry. What is Model Rocketry?

4 “CAP MODEL ROCKETRY PROGRAM” CAP Model Rocketry Program is the next step after studying Module 4-“Rockets” of the Aerospace Dimensions book It is designed to cover the basics of rocket history, rocket science, rocket building, and the safe launch and recovery of model rockets It is designed to get both cadets and Officers working together Upon completion, cadets will be recognized as having leadership skills in the field of model rocketry CAP Model Rocketry Program is the next step after studying Module 4-“Rockets” of the Aerospace Dimensions book It is designed to cover the basics of rocket history, rocket science, rocket building, and the safe launch and recovery of model rockets It is designed to get both cadets and Officers working together Upon completion, cadets will be recognized as having leadership skills in the field of model rocketry 12

5 “CAP MODEL ROCKETRY PROGRAM” 11 Objectives per CAPR MAR 04 “CAP Model Rocketry Program” Acquaint CAP cadets with the importance of rocketry and its role in the future Increase the cadet’s knowledge of aerospace science and motivate them to attain an even greater knowledge of aerospace sciences Employ an interest in model rocketry to enrich the total development of CAP cadets Provide activities and opportunities for the development of aerospace leadership skills Arouse interest in aerospace careers that require knowledge of rocketry Contribute to the development of an understanding of aerospace power Lead to the discovery and furtherance of the individual educational needs of cadets aspiring to careers in aerospace Objectives per CAPR MAR 04 “CAP Model Rocketry Program” Acquaint CAP cadets with the importance of rocketry and its role in the future Increase the cadet’s knowledge of aerospace science and motivate them to attain an even greater knowledge of aerospace sciences Employ an interest in model rocketry to enrich the total development of CAP cadets Provide activities and opportunities for the development of aerospace leadership skills Arouse interest in aerospace careers that require knowledge of rocketry Contribute to the development of an understanding of aerospace power Lead to the discovery and furtherance of the individual educational needs of cadets aspiring to careers in aerospace

10 “CAP MODEL ROCKETRY PROGRAM” 6 Time Frame: 9 classes or build sessions and 2 out of meeting activities to complete the program We will begin in January ’08 and finish May ’08 Costs: Approximately $40.00 for all rockets and motors Squadron will pick up ONE-HALF the costs for cadets (Officer’s will pay full costs) Squadron will pick up ancillary costs (building supplies, recovery wadding, etc). Actual cost for cadets, $20.00 Time Frame: 9 classes or build sessions and 2 out of meeting activities to complete the program We will begin in January ’08 and finish May ’08 Costs: Approximately $40.00 for all rockets and motors Squadron will pick up ONE-HALF the costs for cadets (Officer’s will pay full costs) Squadron will pick up ancillary costs (building supplies, recovery wadding, etc).

11 “CAP MODEL ROCKETRY PROGRAM” TARC If there is further interest in CAP rocketry, the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) is available Every year the challenge is a little different. Basically a rocket is designed and built by a team to meet a specific goal such as carrying a specific type of payload to a specific altitude, and a specific flight duration There are local/regional competitions. Regional winners go to the national competition where college scholarship monies are awarded to the national TARC winners TARC If there is further interest in CAP rocketry, the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) is available Every year the challenge is a little different.
