    2. Civil Air Patrol Aero-Space Education Knowledge. Skills. Attitudes. The Civil Air Patrol Model Rocketry Program A Primer 14

    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. 13

    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 12

    5. “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 11

    6. “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

    7. “CAP MODEL ROCKETRY PROGRAM” • STAGE 1-REDSTONE • AE Class on “A Brief History of Rocketry and its Great Pioneers” • 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 9

    8. “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 8

    9. “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 7

    10. “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 6

    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 5
