Astronomy Days 2018

Last weekend we had another successful Astronomy Days exhibit at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh.

We were selling Semroc Boid kits at cost for the first time. We sold out all 30 kits on the first day. As an enticement to get people out to the Butner launch next weekend we offered free motors if people bring a built kit to the launch. The hope is this will get more new people out to the launch.

The NC State University Tachos Lycos team displayed many of their projects and helped out as exhibitors. In addition, the NC School of Science and Math and Jordan High School teams were displaying their past payloads and rockets and getting some public speaking experience.

The museum counted 14,064 visitors over the two days.

Thanks to all who supplied display items  and volunteered as exhibitors.
