New England Sci-Tech (NEST) hosts the Sci-Tech Rocketeers (STR), a model rocketry club where you can learn to design, build, and fly model rockets. The club is open to adult members, as well as children ages 13 up. Younger children may participate with parent supervision or when enrolled in a workshop where rocketry is taught as an activity. The club is registered as an official section of the National Association of Rocketry (NAR), section #846.
STR members may meet at NEST on some Fridays, 6:00-8:00 pm, and/or certain Sundays 2:00–4:00 pm. However, other unofficial times may be scheduled to meet or to build or launch rockets. Club coordinators may include NEST staff, adult club members, and high school or college age helpers who have rocketry experience. It is NEST policy that a single membership for a child is actually a two-for-one – a parent can participate with the child for free. Therefore we encourage parents to participate with their children or to help mentor and lead. No previous rocketry experience is necessary.
