“Rocketeer Days” will be offered at the Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile State Historic Site for youth in kindergarten through twelfth grade this summer. Every Tuesday in June and July, the site will host a lesson and fun activity for students that will center on rocket and space education. K-4 students will be hosted at 11 a.m., followed by students in 5-8 grades at 1 p.m., and students in grades 9-12 will be challenged at 3 p.m.
Students first will be immersed briefly in a classroom-style setting to learn an aspect of rocketry or space science. Building on what they have learned, they will then launch into a fun activity, creating something they will take home as a souvenir. The lessons are designed to meet national and state scientific learning standards. Each session will last approximately one hour.
At the end of each lesson, the students will earn a special “Rocketeer” badge that celebrates their accomplishment and designates them as an official “Rocketeer of Oscar-Zero!”
Each “class” is limited to 12 seats, including parents and students. Participants must call to register before the event. Registrations must be made at least one day in advance. Students can be registered for any of the sessions, but they may find that the activity of that session is not age-appropriate for them.
To register or get answers to any questions, call 701.797.3691 or write firstname.lastname@example.org.
