1. This album will feature a series of videos on model rocketry for the beginner. The videos are more of a walk-through than a tutorial. They cover construction, finishing, and flying of an Estes Guardian model rocket as well as a tutorial on the physics of flight. They draw upon my experience as a model rocket builder, scientist, and teacher of model rocketry to over forty kids--the latter being the most important since I have seen just about every mistake one could make. I experimented with an unusual over-the-shoulder filming approach so that you will feel like you are building this rocket right alongside me. The speech is informal, perhaps sometimes rambling, rather than lecture style. Each video focuses on a single build element or topic and will be posted in sequence.
