VSSEC has put together resources to support primary school teachers in using Rocketry as the basis for science and math’s lessons in years 5 and 6

This package contains lessons and other resources which teachers can use to bring the exciting field of rocketry to their students. It includes a brief PowerPoint presentation on the history of rocket launching, four sets of lessons from NASA, a pair of web activities from Google, and a set of rocket activities involving the construction of water and balloon rockets. In addition, background reference materials for teacher use are included.

VSSEC would like to thank Engineers Australia National Committee for Space Engineering for their support in developing this program.
