Welcome to the RockOn 2021 Build Videos Page

This workshop typically takes 40 hours in person spread out over 4 days to complete.  The videos below reduce the instruction to ~15 hours. Click on the links below to watch the kit build videos. You cannot build your RockOn Kit without these videos. Doing so will make your experiment ineligible for flight.
