[Planet News] Heavenly Hobbies launches SWOOSH! program

SPRING VALLEY, New York USA -- Heavenly Hobbies LLC is thrilled to unveil its exclusive new program, SWOOSH! This program is designed to
help develop the skills of Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) participants that are also newcomers to the rocketry hobby. The idea is to take these young rocketeers through a series of structured exercises in building and flying model rockets, and in so doing, build their confidence and intuition as to how rockets behave and how they are put together. The objective is to reduce the anxiety and stress levels when the students reach the stage of designing, building and testing their actual TARC entry.
The SWOOSH! program is offered at institutional levels. That is, any school, scout troop or similar institution sponsoring a TARC team of 6 or more participants is invited to join the program. The program includes step-by-step guidance, materials (kits, engines, hardware, etc.), expert technical support and mentorship.
Please note that, according to TARC rules, participants may not receive assistance in designing or building their TARC entry. SWOOSH!'s mission is to provide these young men and women with the basic skills needed to build their TARC entry independently and frustration-free.
Heavenly Hobbies will be happy to support the participant groups in its SWOOSH! program by contributing free SpaceCAD rocket design and simulation software. SpaceCAD is the official design software for TARC.
