Grant Description:

This program allowed fifth-grade students to study the science behind how rockets are launched into our atmosphere. Instead of merely reading about how rockets work, students built an actual model replica to launch. Students engaged in math, science, art and reading to build the rocket, as well as career studies by talking to a real-life pilot during the launch process.
