Following their studies of force and motion, fifth-graders in the summer program at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School participated in a rocket launch activity on August 3.

Using a two-liter soda bottle, water and their creativity, the students worked in groups to design an aerodynamic rocket. After carefully crafting their ships, the fifth-grade students ventured outside to launch the rockets into the air. The water-filled rockets were pumped full of air as the students witnessed them taking flight high into the sky.
