Rockets and Propeller Fun!

Mr. Pineda’s class has been studying propellers and rockets to develop a deep understanding of Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion.  Students assembled Estes Wizard Rockets and launched them on a clear, cold, windless January day. Using altitude meters, students were able to measure the apogee of each rocket.  Twenty-two student groups were successful at launching their rockets and earned an A+ for a test grade.  Congratulations to our phantastic physicists!
