Come meet UC Berkeley’s premier rocketry team, Space Technologies and Rocketry (STAR), and learn about the fundamentals of rocketry and engineering as you take a journey to space! Our presentation will explain the types of physical forces rockets and space shuttles experience and well as how the different components on the rocket help it fly. From the engine of the rocket to the fins and the engine structure, by the end of our presentation, you’ll be ready to build your own model rocket with the help of STAR members.
Together, we will be building straw rockets, fly them outside, and we will see if you can describe how your straw rocket works with a mini rocket-science quiz.
No prior experience necessary and all ages are welcome.
