The Rocketry classes launched their paper rockets in a span of three days. On the first day, the objective was to cover distance, the second day was to get the maximum height, and the third day was to see if the wind affected the angle.

They spend about 2 weeks designing and making their rockets.

“This project is very hands on,” junior Kate-lyn Riley said. “You learn a lot if you are going into aeronautics.”

Instead of reaching a certain criteria of distance, height, and angle, the project is simply a friendly competition between classmates.

“I want to be in aerospace engineering, so this is direct correlation to my future career field,” senior Austin Adams said.
