Mattawan Rocket Team Rocket


With anticipation in the air and rockets at the ready, the Mattawan Rocket Club gathered once more at the familiar grounds of the Mattawan Airpark for their final launch of the season. This time, they brought along a diverse array of rockets, each crafted with care and enthusiasm by individual team members.

Rocket #1: Joey’s Rocket

Joey’s rocket, a sleek black vessel with ample space for an egg payload, took to the skies with gusto. However, its enthusiasm led it a bit too far, soaring out of sight into the distant woods. While the retrieval proved impossible, the team considered it a partial success – a testament to Joey’s craftsmanship.

Rocket #2: Bryce’s Rocket

Bryce’s green-painted rocket promised excitement but met with an unexpected setback. As it ascended, instability caused the parachute deployment to trigger prematurely. Yet, despite the minor damages incurred, the experience served as a valuable lesson in the importance of proper balance and stability.

Rocket #3: Dominic’s Rocket

Dominic’s bright red rocket encountered a series of unfortunate events. A momentary engine failure led to a disastrous trajectory, sending the rocket careening into the ground mere moments after liftoff. The team puzzled over the unexpected outcome, eager to unravel the mystery behind the malfunction.

Rocket #4: The Team Rocket

Amidst the trials and tribulations, the team rocket emerged as a beacon of success. Launching as planned and recovering without incident, it seemed to embody the collective efforts and spirit of the club. However, a critical internal component suffered damage, prompting the team to reconsider future design enhancements.


As the smoke cleared and the rockets returned to Earth, the Mattawan Rocket Club found themselves amidst a mix of triumphs and setbacks. While some rockets soared to new heights, others faltered along the way. Yet, in each launch, valuable lessons were learned – lessons of balance, resilience, and the unpredictable nature of exploration.

As they bid farewell to the season’s final launch, the members of the Mattawan Rocket Club looked ahead with anticipation. With newfound insights and a shared determination, they eagerly awaited the challenges and adventures that awaited them in the upcoming TARC season.
