In the month of September, FLARE Members Dave Kovar, Gloria Kindig, and Thomas Kindig supported rocketry building workshops at three area Middle Schools. The workshops were sponsored by SEMAA (Science, Engineering, Mathematics, and Aerospace Academy) of Southern New Mexico. They provided the Estes Alpha™ rocket kits, and SEMAA teachers provided the classrooms and students.

Students at Zia Middle School At Zia Middle School, teacher Ms. Suzy Rose and her students build ten rockets with Dave and Thomas.

At Chaparal Middle School, Mr. Winters and his students built seventeen rockets with Dave Kovar.

At Picacho Middle School Ms. Melody Hagaman and her ten SEMAA explorers built their models with Thomas and Gloria Kindig.

The students asked us many good questions about space exploration and about rocketry in general. The product of these workshops were well-built model rockets and lots of smiles.

FLARE members are available to conduct classroom rocket building sessions. We appreciate a few weeks notice.
