Final Rocket Assembly
Our next team brought us today’s current events, the mudslide in Afghanistan and the Ceres/Vesta photo taken by the Mars Curiosity rover.
The students continued working on their rockets. Most are now flight-ready. Several students forgot to bring in their rockets from last week – please help them remember next week – so I gave them another design to build. These students will have to finish their rockets during the week.
Students are free to work on decorating their rockets during the week. Weather-permitting we will launch their rockets next week. A little rain won’t be a problem but I will keep you posted on the outlook before our next session. We’ll launch their rockets in the field across from the church. Spectators welcome!
Homework for Next Session
No current events for next week. Several students still need to decide what Engineering Project they want to do. They should prepare a list of milestones with dates and email it to me as soon as they can. As a reminder, here are the criteria and some ideas.
