Fourth graders in the elementary summer school program at Susan E. Wiley Elementary School are using their STEM skills to design and test their own rocket ships. They were tasked with creating their own unique ship out of a soda bottle. After the design phase was complete, the students headed out to the field behind the school for launch. The bottles were filled with water and each student pumped their ship full of air as they flew high in the air.
