US Rocketry Education Program.....

The rest of the world moves on and in Australia, Government departments are still arguing over if it safe to have school kids launch a coke can sized payload.

What can you say Len, it is truly a pity that in Australia it has not been discovered by schools nor the government what a great education tool rocketry would be for the kids. :(

Maybe, just maybe in a small way we can start doing something about it. This Logan display could be that small start as the spokeperson and the organizer of the event is helping to spread the word about us and rocketry to the principals and teachers around the Logan area. :)

Yes Ari,

I am certain, that if we do not do something about this for ourselves and especially our children, then I am certain no-one else will.

You can only do so much.
This forum has certainly helped in attracting new people to the hobby
