Yes it Actually IS Rocket Science!

Grade 5 & 6 students have been developing small rocket prototypes to explore potential and kinetic energy. They built stomp rockets and participated in a "Reindeer Rocket" race, as we've been learning about Newton's Laws of Motion.

Whether flying a small model rocket or launching a giant cargo rocket to Mars, the principles of how rockets work are exactly the same. Understanding and applying these principles means mission success!
