My students need their 2012 Rocket Project funded, please!

My Students

Houston we have a problem, but your generous gift could help us! Greetings to you from sunny Clearwater, Florida. It has been a tradition here at McMullen Booth Elementary School for 1st graders to participate in a rocketry project but economic problems in our community have made funding this

My class is a wonderful mix of little personalities all of whom love science, math and technology.

Our school is in Clearwater, Florida where we are lucky enough to enjoy great weather all year round. My class is a very energetic and fun-loving group who need the extra stimulation of hands-on projects.

My Project

This amazing rocket project and launch day will make memories to last for a very long time. Students build and launch their very own rockets. While at the launch pad students count down to lift-off then run to try to catch their rocket before it hits the ground. I have high school students who have come back to our school for launch day. Great activity for parents and children.

Houston we have a problem and you can help.

Please help my wonderful first graders launch to success in science and math. With your help we can soar. Please consider our request.
