The Calgary Rocketry club is an organization dedicated to the safe enjoyment and promotion of sport Rocketry. Our club provides the rocketry community in Calgary and surrounding area with safe places to launch and fly rockets, as well as gaining experience in building rockets.
The club holds monthly meetings at Roots 2 STEM during which we share construction techniques and help each other with ideas.
There are often building sessions and rocket inspections during these meetings. The Airdrie group organizes at least one model rocket launch per month, weather permitting.
The members of our club are a friendly group of people who are always happy to help new rocketeers with any questions they may have. The club is open to kids and adults alike.
