4-H Aerospace project

November 21, 2018

Aerospace

 

Exhibit Introduction

Each county would be permitted to send one rocket, remote control aircraft, or drone and one poster/display board in each grade category (3-5, 6-8, and 9-12). Thus each county could send a maximum of six exhibits to the state fair, 3 rockets, remote control aircrafts, or drones and 3 poster/display boards. No "Ready to fly" or E2X rockets are acceptable in the 4-H Aerospace project.

All posters, notebooks, and display boards must include a reference list indicating where information was obtained, giving credit to the original author, to complete the 4-H member’s exhibit. This reference list should/might include web site links, people and professionals interviewed, books, magazines, etc.  It is recommended this reference list be attached to the back of a poster or display board, be the last page of a notebook, or included as part of the display visible to the public. A judge is not to discredit an exhibit for the manner in which references are listed. 

Rockets may be exhibited with a base, but launch pads are not permitted. All rockets must weigh less than 3.3 pounds and considered an amateur rocket according to FAA regulations.

Remote control aircraft or drones may be constructed from a kit or purchased ready-to-fly.
