Hi, Chabot in Oakland is having a rocketry day on March 23 and we've been invited to participate.

With the okay of the Board, I'd like to coordinate some volunteers to help table at Chabot.

Besides rockets, a laptop to show launch videos, spent motors, motor cases, parachutes, and other kit to show off, I'd like to have 2-3 people help out so we can take breaks and provide coverage from 10 to 4 that day.

Fred, can this go on Wednesday's agenda? I'm going to get on a Zoom call with Ms Charles Monday or Tuesday next week to get specifics.

 Good Afternoon Ms. Humphries,

I hope this email finds you well. My apologies for the late response after we met a few First Friday's ago. We are currently gearing up for our 2024 special events and programs and it sounds like your knowledge of rocket launches will be a perfect fit!

This year we are hosting our first annual Rocketfest on Saturday, March 23rd, from 10:00am-4:00pm. It is a day to celebrate all things rockets, including the large one we hand installed in our entranceway at the end of last year. We are looking for partners that can table at the event with hands-on activities, live science demonstrations and to display their projects. I put the event description below. I would love to schedule a time to chat over the phone or Zoom. Please reach out with any questions and I look forward to speaking with you soon.

*"Blast off to Chabot Space & Science Center for a day filled with hands-on fun! The Center is hosting our first-ever Rocketfest. These feats of engineering allow us to send satellites into orbit, study Earth’s upper atmosphere and eventually send humans to other planets. Discover more about rockets through hands-on activities, live science demonstrations, special guest speakers and more!"*

Thanks, Tony.

Here's what Chabot is looking for:

For Rocketfest, here are a few of the things we are looking for and what we can provide. Please let me know if you have any additional questions and I would be happy to meet over Zoom later this week. I am free Wednesday afternoon, Thursday morning and most of the day on Friday. 

What We Are Looking For
  • Partners to table for all (or some) of the event that runs 10am-4pm. Set up runs from 9am-10am and cleanup will run 4pm-5pm. 
  • Displays with rockets, rocket parts, models, videos and other educational items showing the science behind building and launching multiple types of rockets. 
  • Hands-on activities for kids related to rocketry. 
  • We are also looking for guest speakers, if you or anyone from LUNAR would like to give a formal presentation, but no pressure. 
  • Feel free to bring as many handouts, brochures or educational materials as you would like for the event. 

What We Can Provide
  • One or two 6ft tables in an indoor or outdoor spot, depending on your needs. Please note, we cannot have open flames since we are located in with in an Oakland City park and we are in a redwood forest. 
  • Access to electrical outlets and a tv or projector screen to run video if needed.
  • Your organization will be listed in our advertising. If you are able to participate, we will need the name of our organization (LUNAR), activity or display name, and 2-4 sentences about your organization and the activity or display you will have at Rocketfest. 
  • We will provide lunch to all of our participants, so please let us know if anyone has any food sensitivities or preferences. 

I'll plan to follow up with Chabot on a call this Thursday or Friday.
