Ever want to learn to build a rocket and what makes them go? We have various levels of model rockets that we can help you build and then let you launch them at the 2020 Jasper Dark Sky Festival. Depending on the weather, members of the ERC will also be demonstrating some of their larger rockets throughout the day.
