Here are a few images of the Adult/Child teams in the park for their first launch.



Breck buddy-boxes with all teams for more practice time in the air.

Wrenching in the field

…and innovation abounds!

Our Maker friend Rick was in town with his air-powered rocket so much aerodynamic fun was had by all:

Rocket Rick!

Due to popular request, Breck gave a demo on El Wire for night flying at the end of class:

Video of this class will be embedded here and available on YouTube asap, thanks for your patience!

Images and video of our Adult Build and Night Fly class from the last 2 Tuesdays are COMING SOON.

The next 2 weeks are busy with BA prep for Maker Faire Detroit happening July 28th-29th, but we will be back with more classes in mid-August so anybody stranded in the tri-boro area for the summer take note!
