With the end of the school year rapidly approaching, RAPS 4th Science Club celebrated our final meeting with rocket launching. Students designed, built, and launched their own rockets using a 2-liter plastic bottle and ordinary materials from home. Having just returned from Johnson Space Center, these students were inspired and ready. Check out those rockets!
CONGRATULATIONS 4th GRADE SCIENCE CLUB - JOB WELL DONE!
Rapoport 4th Grade Science Students wrapped up a fantastic field trip to Houston. After our visit and sleepover in the Aquarium, we made it Moody Gardens then headed for Johnson Space Center.
Truly, hands-on learning is the best! Students had opportunities to observe sea-life and rain forests, and visit "Mission Control" for the US Space Program. What a great way to cap off the year!
Thanks to our parents, staff, and sponsors for making this a truly memorable and inspiring event for these young scientists!

Yes, we are in Texas but Moody Gardens provided an opportunity to travel through a Rain Forest to visit varieties of trees and plants that are rarely seen by Texans.
These scientists do know how to get ready for a full evening of learning at the Space Camp After Dark...... everyone recharged their batteries in the swimming pool then we headed off to Johnson Space Center for Space Camp After Dark.
