Balsa Wood Towers

In this project, students will design and construct their own unique tower in effort to hold the most amount of weight. The higher the weight, the higher their grade !


Good Times !


Solid Fuel Rocket

During this engaging hands on unit, students are introduced to exploring systems and subsystems. For example, the propulsion system of our rocket is a subsystem within the rocket itself.


There is also a focus placed on aerodynamics as the projects begin to come to life toward the final stage of the unit !
Students receive several grades during this project including the launch performance and overall design through a classwide peer grading assessment.
