There will be a launch of an Estes Mongoose at HRPO on Saturday 24 February at 5:30pm, during the annual NanoDays celebration. This will be the launch for the winning bidder for the latest Rocket Range bid round. The bidders must all be at least eighteen years of age; the person who presses the launch button must be at least eight years old. All winning Rocket Range bids go to the BREC Foundation donation account for the Highland Road Park Observatory.

Though the Mongoose is a two-stage rocket, it can only be launched as a one-stage from HRPO property. However, the winning bidder will take both stages home.

HRPO's Spring Rocket Camp takes place on Tuesday 3 April and Wednesday 4 April, 8am to 5pm each day. Kids must be nine- to thirteen-years-old.

The session will focus on each "rocketeer" construction and launching a two-stage Estes Mongoose chemical rocket (like the one for bid that will be launched during NanoDays).

Spring Rocket Camp is Tuesday and Wednesday. There are still openings left. In addition to the rocket construction and launch there will be a transit simulation. The Camp theme is "Exoplanets".
