First – Fifth grade TAG students at Priceville Elementary School ended the school year with a “Blast” by launching Estes “Alpha” model rockets.
This was a great follow-up from a prior United Launch Alliance field trip. The students learned how rockets are built during the field trip, then they constructed their own rockets with kits by Estesrockets.com. A BP matching grant (donated by a grandparent) was used to purchase these 36 rockets and “A” engines. The rockets blasted to about 100-150 feet with the “A” engines.
