I’m realizing that rocketry is associated as a summer activity in many educators minds. I find this in reports from 4-H, Scout, and Summer camps. However summer is not my favorite time to launch. When is your favorite launch season? I supposed this has a great deal to your geographical region. Here in the South we contend with high humidity, scourching sun and myriads of insect pest during the summer. Of course anytime I can convince an educator to launch rockets is the optimal launch time.
