1…2…3…blast off! In this class, students will use the experimental design process to build and launch rockets! We will begin by exploring Newton’s laws of motion and the fundamentals of flight and rocket propulsion. We will examine various recovery techniques and build and test multiple designs. Next, we will use 3D software and a 3D printer to make parts for our rockets. We may even have time for some flight simulations! This course incorporates all aspects of STEM and will strengthen students’ problem solving skills and ability to work as part of a team. This is your chance to try something out, see if it works, adjust the design, and try again!
For Rising 6th – 8th Grade Students
Your Summer of Discovery Awaits
MITY’s ExplorSchool provides rising 6th-8th grade students a unique opportunity to investigate new topics and dive deeper into their passions at a level that is challenging and motivating. Intellectually curious students take two classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, enabling them to explore different disciplines, experience things that are not possible within a normal school setting, and forge new friendships.
