New class! Rockets!

Students in Grades 5-8 can join Mr. Huff for a new fun, exciting class this fall: Rockets!

In this class students will work in teams to design and launch a pressurized water bottle rocket. Class will cover:
• Newton’s 1st and 3rd laws of motion
• Forming hypotheses and testing them
• Problem solving through brainstorming, evaluation, and testing of possible solutions
• Principles of propulsion and flight

Launches will take place the last two or three class sessions.
