MIDDLE SCHOOL ROCKET CLUB STARTS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 11TH AFTER SCHOOL

No cost; no experience needed. This club will meet in Mr. T’s classroom once a week until 3:45pm or 4pm. Students will build and test rockets before the cold weather arrives to be ready for spring launch dates. This year’s 2023-2024 team challenge is to design and build a rocket to carry an egg to an altitude of 820 feet and return it safely back to the ground in a time between 43 and 46 seconds from lift-off to landing.
