2nd Graders Blast Off!

Students test launch paper rockets in STEAM class.

2nd grade students recently finished an aerospace engineering unit in their STEAM class with a test launch of their paper rockets! Their goal was to land their rocket in a box with a picture of the moon.

Prior to the launch, students spent several weeks learning about the parts of the rocket, the science behind how rockets work, including thrust and gravity, and then design and make their own. During the launch, students had the chance to visit the “garage station” to make modifications to their rockets.
