Post date: Jul 26, 2012 4:27:20 AM

After months of planning, on Saturday July 21, 2012, the Youngstown ARS Composite Squadron came together for the 2012 Model Rocketry Program. Under the direction of 1st Lt Brian Stoneburner, and led by C/SMSgt Conroy, a total of 24 cadets actively participated in this aerospace activity which focuses on the history of rockets, famous people in rocketry, and the aerospace of rockets. In addition to this, cadets participated in hands-on activities including fizzy fliers and pop bottle rockets. At the end of the first day the cadets had assembled one of the two rockets they will be building as part of this program. Many thanks go to the Kruppa family for providing lunch. The final day of this program is scheduled for July 28th, 2012 and will include the launching of the two rockets in the afternoon.
