Summer Is Here - Mentor


There are many ways to mentor. The easiest is at a local school where you can help math and science teachers with their students. Plan now to help next fall.


Kids love to build and fly and sometimes they discover learning is fun! 


Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts have badges for rocketry


The boys love a good drag race! 


Speaking of racing, building and flying doesn't always happen inside. Our club, The Birmingham Rocket Boys, held this build and fly event with the Girl Scouts on the infield of the fastest race track in the world; Talladega Speedway.

Verna was with club president, Ron Dunn and founder, Ron Witherspoon. 


Yes, the girls are just as good as the boys when it comes to rocketry and knowing they were doing this at Talladega was not lost on them. 


Mentoring is not limited to elementary students. This TARC group (Team America Rocketry Challenge) is from Phillips Academy; a school in Birmingham. They competed for college scholarships through a national egg lofting competition. In order to qualify there are very specific guidelines for flying and recovering a raw egg intact. 


Mentoring even extends to college level engineering. This group of young men was a part of the USLI Program. The NASA University Student Launch Initiative (USLI) is a research-based, competitive, and experiential exploration project that provides relevant and cost effective research and development. Their goal is employment after graduation and most of them will have a job in a related field before they graduate. 


Their flight went very well.


Yes, there are ladies who participate in USLI too. This particular group was from the University of Alabama and there are many such teams from colleges and universities all over the country. 


Even fashionistas love rocketry!


Of course, rocketry does have it's dangerous side. Don't be surprised if you come to fly a rocket and end up with the love of your life.


Whether you mentor, find your one and only, or just come to fly, rocketry will put a smile on your face.
