Lisha Kill 7th graders ‘launch’ new skills

7th Grade students launch new skills with innovative lesson on rockets.

Seventh grade students participating in Mathew Prince’s technology class kicked off their school year with an introduction to STEM through an innovative lesson on rockets.

The students worked with a partner to assemble their rockets allowing the students to practice communication skills with peers while creating a positive classroom experience. 

“After they assembled, they launch and usually enjoy the experience of trying to catch them as they come down,” Prince said.  “This is a great introduction lesson for our technology students.”

The students held a launch this week with most of the rockets launching between 100 to 200 feet in the air.
