Last August, a friend of mine asked me to teach a rocketry and space workshop at her church in Watts, CA. I had the pleasure of teaching seven intelligent, eager students how to build thier own Alpha III rocket kit. My students, who ranged in age from 7 to 14, also built and successfully flew a PML 1/4 scale patriot. As a suprise, I packed certificates in the Patriot's payload bay. You should have seen their faces when I opened the rocket and gave them the papers. Here's a picture of us at the August 2004 ROC club launch. That's me on the far left. I was especially proud of the young man to the right of me in the photo. He is handicapped and has poor motor and speech skills. I am glad I was able to help him build and fly his rocket.
