The week-long Astronaut Camp at the Armstrong Air & Space Museum wrapped up Friday afternoon.

Campers have spent the week learning about space and flight, and Friday afternoon, campers helped build their own model rockets and launch them on the front lawn just outside of the museum. Campers say that there were several steps that they needed to complete in order to build their rockets for the launch.

"The engine we had to leave alone, but we had to put in several different things, like fins that are made out of wood," said Malachi Ley. "The bottom fins were really hard to do so the counselors did it for us."
