Maker Faire

AERO-PAC: High Power Amateur Rocketry

Type: Maker Table/Exhibit
Program Area: Rocketry

Day/Time: Saturday and Sunday

Location: Fiesta Hall

Ever wonder how you can be a rocket scientist? You can learn the core
principles of high power rocketry and build and fly your own rockets
that can outperform the fastest jet fighters.

The Association of Experimental Rocketry of the Pacific (AERO-PAC) is
the Northern California and Northern Nevada prefecture of the Tripoli
Rocketry Association. For over two decades we have held three high-power
rocketry launches a year at our launch site in the Black Rock Desert in
Northern Nevada. Projects range from hobby rockets built with your
children, to cooperative university projects launching autonomous
recovery robot satellites, to innovative rockets penetrating to the
edges of space.

Come see examples of these rockets, meet the folks that design, build
and fly them and learn how you too can become a rocket scientist.
