TINGSHOTOS

 

 

We are a newer Section of the National Association of Rocketry that serves the southwest Chicago suburban area. Our club promotes rocketry for the entire family with an emphasis on supporting the youth of our communities through rocketry related educational programs.

We support a number of different Scouting organizations as well as 4H clubs. We can support group launches of up to about 75 people.

Interested in a rocket class about aerodynamics? Check out the class we will be teaching at Kendall County 4H office in Yorkville, Illinois in June by clicking here. And if you are located in DuPage County then perhaps the Naperville location would be closer for you. We aren't doing the build session but will be providing the launch support. Information on the DuPage County class is here.

We're scheduling our first meeting for 2013 very soon. Please click here to fill out a form so that we can contact you once we have our meeting time and place scheduled.

Please contact us if you would like to have your group be involved in rocketry and we'll take it from there!  Here's a flyer on our club (flyer).
 

We held building and launch session on April 22nd and 29th. This was held in conjunction with the Kendall County 4H group and was open to all kids from ages 8-18. The April 22nd session was a 2-hour building session where participants learned about model rockets and got to build a real model rocket for the low fee of $8.00. We provided the rocket kit and building materials. The April 29th session was the launch date where a fun and safe launch was conducted. We'll post photos shortly.

 

50th anniversary of the Moon landing- We conducted a build and launch session on July 18th from 12:30pm 3:30 in Villa Park, Illinois at the Villa Park Public Library.  This event was held in conjunction with the Villa Park Public Library and Parks and Recreation Department.
