Rocket Launching with Pittsburg High School

Will Morris, STEM & 4-H Youth Development Agent, had the opportunity to work with Pittsburg High School students to create and launch rockets. Students began by cutting their styrofoam rockets to create the proper slips for fins. They were then able to color the fins, insert, and duct tape to the body to complete the rocket. The students then held them back by a rubber band on a yard stick and launched!
