A progressive collaboration between the CCA and Aerojet Rocketdyne, the LaunchPad pavilion will allow students and their parents the opportunity to enjoy a hands-on educational experience designed to spark the interest of young adults and their involvement with STEM while helping to provide the aerospace industry with a new generation of professionals. Aerojet Rocketdyne’s LaunchPad module features interactive exhibits, allowing students to experience the planets of our Solar System, program robotic spheres through an obstacle course, peer into the workings of a holographic rocket and compete in math races with their friends. LaunchPad also will feature contributions from other STEM-based groups such as the national champion Jesuit High School Robotics team and the Cameron Park Observatory, which will offer safe, solar viewing. The pavilion will be filled with flight simulators, space artifacts, robots and rockets, and guests can watch demonstrations, participate in games and experience firsthand the clear relationship between the aerospace industry and STEM studies.
