||Girls entering grades 5 through 8 this fall will want to be
a part of the Buehler Challenger & Science Center's Rocket Girl
Rocket Girls is designed to positively
influence girls in the fields of mathematics, science and
technology. Our camp trains girls to become risk takers
and expand their horizons. Our camp encourages girls to
think "why not me?" when it comes to careers involving
mathematics, engineering and technology.
Like astronauts in training, girls will learn about living and
working in space, the forces of flight and women in space history.
Girls will build several rockets, participate in an egg drop challenge
and a water balloon challenge. Just imagine acting as a Mission
Controller or an Astronaut while flying simulated missions: Return to
the Moon, Rendezvous with Comet Halley and Voyage to Mars in our
Funding for this program made possible by the New Jersey Space Grant
Consortium, piloted in 2006.
