Outreach Group: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Sponsoring Institution: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
City: Daytona Beach
State: FL
Description: We currently have one outreach program that we do consistently each year - in the spring we go to a local elementary school and assist 2-3 classes of 4th-5th graders in making and launching model rockets.  We also talk about rockets, astronauts, space, etc.  The other outreach activities that we do are less consistent, but we usually do at least one other event each year.  In the past we have done the SOCK with the cylinder drops in local middle schools and high schools, as well as an egg drop contest at a local high school.  We deal with general physics, but since our university is space related, we focus in astrophysics and rockets since the two degree programs we have are Engineering Physics (with an emphasis on space systems engineering and space physics) and Space Physics.
