The Edmonton Rocketry Club is honoured to be part of the

2020 Jasper Dark Sky Festival!

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.

Come and see us on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at the Jasper Activity Centre in Jasper, AB between 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm and enjoy the following activities:

  • Large display of rockets of various sizes and designs, including our 9-foot/50-pound ERC Club Rocket!
  • Rocket Building & Launch sessions. (As participation is limited and to avoid line-ups, we strongly encourage you to pre-book your time slot on our website!)
  • Learn about rocket safety and other rocketry organizations across Canada.
  • Live model rocket launch demonstrations outside.
  • AV presentation of videos from previous high-power launches.
  • Rocket kits and motors for sale. (For pictures and prices please visit our website.)
