Yes, I guess my suggestion is similar to the NAR programs. My idea was to create a package containing both a kit and the additional printed test materials for taking the quiz. Each kit would be selected to highlight a given skill. The NAR program appears to take the person farther than what I intended; my idea was to tailor the program to the true beginner, who comes into rocketry without any of the basic skills (or with only a few...).

Needs more work on the idea to keep it from growing out of hand, granted.
