My students need a class set of rockets for their flight unit in science.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We are a very rural school located in Southern Oregon. Our school is a K-5 elementary school with a large playground and surrounding property that allows for many outdoor activities. It is not unusual to see turkey and deer on the playground, along with goats, lizards, and sometimes the neighbor's horse.
At our school we are faced with a high poverty population.
Our students are dependent upon finding a safe and secure environment here in which they are able to learn. This is often the main place in which they feel at home.
We make it a priority to ensure that our students are provided with the essentials they need to be successful.
Meeting their mental, physical, emotional, social and academic needs is a constant concern and focus for our staff. We have limited resources by which to accomplish these important goals.
We are studying variables and flight in our science unit. We were able to look at pendulums and floating boats for a very small budget. We will be constructing gliders and airplanes with paper and other materials. The students will work in teams to construct model rockets, name their craft, and also do some writing about the process. Following directions will be a wonderful learning experience for them. They are eager to be able to make their own flying machines. Hands on science is very motivating. Launch day is one of the memorable moments kids will look back on in the school year.
