Be on the lookout for future technical, programming, and engineering skills camps to teach you about some of the hardest tenchiques it takes to build a rocket!
After seeing as all schools in Virginia were closed amidst the global pandemic, we created Caelus Computing to keep all of us students in touch with basic academic skills! Over the course of several months starting in April 2020, Project Caelus has partnered with nonprofit Youth for Sewa to run free, online, one-on-one tutoring sessions for students in grades 1 - 10 in math, science, or computer science.

In August of 2020, Project Caelus held a Summer Rocketry Camp which offered both an introductory to rocketry basics camp, and an advanced skills camp over the course of two weeks. We taught students from the 2nd to 10th grade and held lessons for almost 2 hours each day of the week in the camp that covered topics ranging from Astronomy to CAD/Programming and even to Arduino basics.
Braddock Elementary School Event

Some of the Project Caelus members traveled to Braddock Elementary School to teach Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders about Newton's 3 Laws of Physics. After the lesson, we held a fun balloon rocket activity where all the kids were able to build model balloon rockets, test their speed, and compete with their peers!
