1. Fly the farthest.
2. Fly the highest.
3. Are in the air the shortest amount of time! (We want to get to our destination quickly!)
This week, fifth graders learned rocketry parts and had time to explore the various propellants that are available for them to use. Making comparisons between propellant options allows students to see the benefits and drawbacks of each. We'll be finishing our brainstorming and planning sessions this week and next week, we'll officially build and test our rockets! See some fifth graders' brainstorms below!
