May 17th, Scouting Activity with Rockets 2 years 9 months ago #2485

Hi,
I'm the den leader for a local cub scouts troop. We are planning our final meeting for the year and would like to include some small scale model rockets. The meeting is May 17th at Saint Maria Goretti School in Westfield: 17102 Spring Mill Rd. We have a space the length of a football field and the width of probably 2-3 fields. I have 2 requests:

1. I'm looking for someone that might help in selecting the right kind of rocket to keep within the space we have allotted, as well as any safety tips/recommendations. At least 3 of the dads (including me) have done this before, just been a while and when adding young boys to the mix, I want to take extra precautions.

2. Is there anyone in the area available to join us for our meeting that evening? Maybe someone that has a few larger rockets they'd be willing to bring just so the boys can see them and learn about this awesome and exciting world of science and engineering.

Thank you for all you do, and I look forward to hearing back. Thank you!
