Due to the public health concern caused by the COVID-19 virus, UNH administration made the decision to cancel all UNH Cooperative Extension events, programs and noncredit classes through May. The health and safety of our staff and the many members of our New Hampshire communities that participate in our programs is most important. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this uncertain time.

The new date will be posted here as soon as possible and announced in our newsletter (sign up).

About the Event

Modern rocket design began near the beginning of the 20th century. While much has been learned and rockets have grown larger and more powerful, rocket designs are still improving. Engineers developing new rockets must control variables and consider failure points when improving rocket designs. By changing one variable at a time, engineers can determine if that change leads to an increase or decrease in performance. They must also consider how their design might fail, and work to improve their design. These incremental changes allow engineers to improve rocket performance and increase the amount of mass they can lift into space.

This is a fun and exciting introduction into the world of Engineering. The workshop is appropriate for adults and volunteers who work with youth in out-of-school time or classrooms.  Content most appropriate for youth ages 5th-9th, but can be adapted as needed.
