About the 4-H Aerospace Project

Learn about the principles of flight through hands-on activities like building and launching a model rocket! The 4-H aerospace project provides youth with educational information about aerospace that develops project skills (i.e., principles of flight, model rocket construction, model rocket safety) and life skills (i.e., decision-making, using science and technology, developing communication skills).
