RRS at the Two-Bit Circus in Hawthorne

The Reaction Research Society (RRS.ORG) was proud to participate at the Two-Bit Circus event held in Hawthorne, California on Saturday, May 19, 2018. The Two-Bit Circus Foundation is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) Carinval designed to inspire young people into STEAM careers to learn practical skills and build the things of imagination.

The RRS was proud to be at the Two-Bit Circus STEAM Carnival in Hawthorne (5/19/2018)

Osvaldo, Frank, Max and Russell were at our booth at the event introducing people to the RRS and our passion for amateur rocketry. We had one of our standard alpha and standard beta rockets on display.

The RRS also brought an upgraded air rocket launcher which was used to propel small paper rockets to great heights. It was wildly successful with over the 100 kids that stopped by the RRS exhibit.

The RRS was proud to hoist our banner at the event. We are thankful to the Two-Bit Circus Foundation for their consideration and inclusion in their spectacular event. We hope to present again at the next event with Two-Bit Circus.

Two-Bit Circus STEAM Carnival was a success! RRS glad to be there.

If anyone is interested in learning more about the RRS or having one of our rocket build events at their school or at a private event, please contact Larry, our events coordinator.

Frank closed the presentation with an update on the SuperDosa project to reclaim the amateur altitude record for the RRS. The students had many questions and was interested in the many things that the RRS was doing.

The RRS is glad to continue our support of the Mars City Foundation and we hope to be present for other Mars City events in the future. The RRS thanks Vera Mulyani for inviting the society to be a part of the PowerLab event.
