Rockets Under Construction
Space Explorers Club conducted a Rocket Build Workshop for parent volunteers to learn using hands on methods how to assemble model rockets.
We had model rockets experts from the community as well as our own parents there to walk parent volunteers through each step of the build process. Parent Volunteers can now take their newly found expertise into the classroom to teach each student how to build their own rocket for a successful launch in March. We’re grateful for the won-derful parent turnout and willingness to guide our students to be Space Pioneers.
We can’t wait for the big launch! Thank you volunteers!
Hands On 4th Grade Science
Hoover’s Hogwarts students were experimenting with different objects to figure out what classified an object as a conductor or an insulator. In order to do this, they used the objects to see if it would light a light bulb.
