AstroCamp: Day 2 - Post 2

The 4th and 5th Grades are having an amazing day at AstroCamp.  They started their day with time in the swimming pool, learning about microgravity and weightlessness.  The afternoon session will focus on rocketry.  In this class, the students will begin by learning about forces and Isaac Newton’s three laws of motion. Students will help demonstrate each law using unique tools and making everyday connections. Next, students will use their new knowledge of how motion works to create their own rockets out of a two liter bottle. In the next class period students will launch their rockets using water and pressurized air on our specially designed rocket launching field.
