The Junior High students, under the direction of Mrs. Hill, launched rockets made in our own science lab. We used materials from kits provided to us, followed step-by-step instructions, and in groups, we decorated our rockets with our own artistic finesse. Some of us flew our rockets high into the sky while others caused the audience to gasp due to malfunctions and wayward trajectories.
Both the lower and upper elementary classes came to enthusiastically support the event. The kids enjoyed counting down before each launch. Some parents of the Junior High students came and watched as well. One of the last rockets to take off flew a wee bit off course and landed in one of Montessori’s neighboring yards. We thought it might have been headed down a Montessori parent’s chimney. The creators of this malfunctioning rocket ran after it as the crowd of children watched in awe. Overall it was a very enjoyable and educational experience.
