One of the coolest things at Maker Faire each year is the local rocketry groups who display their best rockets and swap stories with attendees.

The members of Tripoli MN will have a bunch of their rockets on display and share a brief overview of modern high power rocketry, propulsion and electronics. They’ll also demonstrate the simulation programs used to predict things like max speed and altitude of a particular rocket and motor combination. These guys really know their stuff, go ahead and try to stump them!
Also learn how to join your local club to start building and flying rockets of your own.
Make: Day is this Saturday, March 14th from 10am -3pm at the Science Museum of Minnesota!
