Students will learn the fundamentals of rocketry, including Newton’s laws, rocket stability, and components of a rocket. Each student has the opportunity to construct and launch their own Estes model rockets using black powder motors. The students walked through the rocket assembly, while being taught proper measurement and construction techniques. The students are taught how to pack parachutes, load motors, install igniters and develop a pre-launch checklist. Finally, the students get to launch their rockets! This is a middle school favorite!
