DESIGN - BUILD - TEST ! - "Yes, I am a Rocket Scientist!"

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!


"...One Small Step Off the Bus, One Giant Leap Into Science"

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!
