Macoupin County 4-H Camp Rocket a Blast
July 31, 2017
Macoupin County 4-H offered a three-day aerospace camp on July 24-26 at the University of Illinois Extension. During 4-H Camp Rocket, Jeff and Julie Behme of Carlinville shared their knowledge and excitement for science and technology with youth. Jeff instructed youth on the basic principles of flight and guided youth through constructing their very own model rocket.
Youth were able to see their rockets in action during the 4-H launching event held at the Macoupin County Fairgrounds on July 26. Family and friends gathered around to watch this event and to show support for youth involved in this program. The event was filled with many smiles and much glee when youth watched their very own rockets soar high in to the sky.
