MTPE Day 3

Rockets, rockets, and more rockets. That's what today was all about. We talked about integrating rocketry into the curriculum, we built fizz rockets, straw rockets, and balloon rockets, and then we built some "real" model rockets. It was a blast! I think this will definitely influence my curriculum, at least in my conceptual physics class. Kids always love aviation and rocketry, so if I can actually teach something while I am "having fun with the students", why not?

I must say that on most rockets, I did have the highest altitude on the little rockets, at least. :) Is it wrong to blow your own horn every now and then?
