Take part in the annual Rock On Workshop and learn to build rocket payloads before launching them into space! The Rock On Workshop runs from June 16-21, 2018 at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.
The Rock On workshop challenges teams consisting of three members to build a rocket payload from a kit in three days. The event culminates in a rocket launch on the sixth day, where the rocket could reach 73 miles above the earth. The rocket and launch operations will be provided by Wallops Flight Facility. For more information, visit the Rock On website.
