Open House Tour
Looking to get involved? The first step is to show up for an open house. You'll have a chance to talk to some other makers, take a tour of the facilities and be well on your way to applying for membership if you feel like it will be a good fit. Tour starts promptly at 7:05PM. Free parking during the open house.
Come join us in September for an "out-of-this-world" experience with our very own rocketry enthusiast Jordan Whyte, former member of the Canadian Association of Rocketry. This is a very rare opportunity to become immersed in the world of sport rocketry. Our workshop has been divided into a series of hands-on classes that will have you learning intermediate rocket building techniques of the pro's along with rocket flight theory to help you design your own re-usable airframe from scratch. All supplies, construction materials and equipment needed for your rocket build will be made easily accessible. As an added bonus, state-of-the-art sensor technology will be available for the gathering of data on your rocket flight which can tether to your smart phone using Bluetooth technology. In addition, we will be including UBlox GPS/GNSS tracking with the long range - low power and license free radio system which can be used to locate your rocket using real-time satellite data over kilometers of distance. We will be using both single use and re-loadable rocket motors using commercially manufactured Ammonium Perchlorate composite propellant (APCP).
Registration will be conducted on a first come - first served basis only.
