What will my students experience?
The purpose of Betabox Experiences is to spark interest in STEM topics and peel back the intimidation factor of hands-on skills.
In 3D Rockets, students begin with raw materials and craft them into a fuselage with fins.
2. Testing & Center of Gravity
Next, students learn how to stabilize their design by balancing their prototype and learning about fin layouts.
3. 3D Printing
The nose cones on each students rocket is 3D Printed, and while building students will learn how these parts are made!
Students launch their own air-powered rockets and can improve their designs and relaunch with onboard payloads.
