Model Rocketry Program

A Primer

“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.

“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”

Objectives per CAPR 50-20 15 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

“CAP MODEL ROCKETRY PROGRAM”

  • The Program
  • Consists of 3 stages (Redstone, Titan, Saturn)
  • EACH stage consists of:
    • A classroom portion
    • A 10-question exam
    • A building phase
    • A flying phase

  • 10-question quiz and complete “Official Witness Log”
  • Build and Fly both the “Fizzy Flyer” & “Goddard Rocket” and complete “Official Witness Log-Hands on Phase”
  • Discuss what was learned as it relates to rocketry
  • Complete and Award “Redstone Stage Squadron Commander’s Approval” certificate

slide8

“CAP MODEL ROCKETRY PROGRAM”

  • STAGE 2-TITAN
  • AE Class on “Laws That Govern Rocket Science”
  • 10-question quiz and fill out “Official Witness Log”
  • Build an entry level commercial single stage rocket
  • Build a scale model commercial single stage rocket
  • Launch the two Titan-stage kits as an out-of-meeting activity and complete the Official Witness Log
  • Complete and Award “Titan Stage Squadron Commander’s Approval” certificate

slide9

“CAP MODEL ROCKETRY PROGRAM”

  • STAGE 3-SATURN
  • AE Class on the “Model Rocket Safety Code”, “Altitude Tracking”, and “Model Rocket Engines”
  • 10-question quiz plus Model Rocket Safety Code quiz and fill out Official Witness Log
  • Build a Payload Carrier rocket
  • Launch the Saturn-stage kit as an out-of-meeting activity and complete the Official Witness Log
  • Complete and Award “Saturn Stage Squadron Commander’s Approval” certificate
  • Upon approval of the Squadron Commander award the CAP Rocketry Badge. If the cadet has earned the Mitchell Award a silver star may be attached to the Goddard Achievement Ribbon

“CAP MODEL ROCKETRY PROGRAM”

  • 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

slide11

“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
