Beginning Rocketry (Merrimack)
In this session's
Beginning Rocketry class we decided to change things up a bit
with the construction of the Espresso foam cup rocket followed
by the Thing-a-ma-jig kit. It sounded like a great idea
at the time but the two 90 min sessions allowed for
construction were barely enough for the kids to get the
rockets constructed and I had to loan out several hot glue
guns so that the kids could finish them at home. I would
save the foam cup rockets for either advance classes in the
future, or sessions that would allow us 3 weeks to complete,
just to be safe.
In the end,
however, we got them all built and flown! They
were a lot of fun but there were some frustrations as
well. The Thing-a-ma-Jig build went much better with
outstanding results and the kids loved it.
