Pine Glen and Memorial Rocket Day

There was perfect weather for the launch of the fourth grade rockets from Pine Glen and Memorial.  This year I better understood the science that is the foundation of the day.

What helped was a visit to Pine Glen the day prior to the launch.  The fourth grade students at Pine Glen constructed paper airplanes and were testing them in regards to the four properties of the rockets they would be launching the following day – thrust, lift, drag,  and gravity.
