Rockets, Rockets Everywhere!

My students need materials to learn (and have fun) about the basic principals of force and motion using rocketry.

My Students

Who can resist rockets! Seeing them fly high into the air, and wondering where they will land! Let's take science out of the classroom and onto the field!

My students rarely have the opportunity for enrichment activities.

They come from high poverty homes, where many speak English as a second language, or have learning disabilities. School, and the sciences in particular, is usually not engaging, or not even seen as a priority-let alone college. I would like to change that.

My Project

I am requesting materials to lead a unit on rocketry, in order to learn about force and motion (a state standard). Having the hands on materials to build, test and fly rockets, will engage even my most reluctant learner. These materials will help open the door for many into the fun of science and technology. This will also engage many of my boy students, whom even in elementary, have already checked out. Hands on, enrichment opportunities are a number one way to improve students' success in school.

Many of my students never know their own potential, or what careers are available to them.

I want to open that window of opportunity early, to capture and retain their enthusiasm, so they can go on to become leaders in tomorrow's world!
