Lena, Illinois – It’s been a long time since the flying rockets of the 80’s and 90’s. In Lena, Illinois students are learning about thrust structures and thermo protection systems. Le-Win Junior High students are in the middle of their Engineering Design Challenges unit which includes thrust structures and thermo protection systems.
Students start off with several classroom mock tests, move on to water bottle rockets, model rockets, and finally end their unit with flying the drone.
Here’s a video. Did you shoot off rockets when you were growing? Chime In
