Our May 16 meeting speakers will be Colin Lang, from the Alaoma Heights Independent School District, and several of his students.
Mr. Lang teaches the machine shop class at Alamo Heights. He helps and guides his students to transforming raw sheet metal into a 20-foot rocket capable of reaching nearly 4 times the speed of sound. The machine shop is part of the Rocketry Program and results in students earning a state endorsement after they completed all 4 years
The presentation will be on Alamo Height's Rocketry Program. Colin and the students will also bring along several rocket components to show the audience and a video of one of the launches at White Sands.
