Would you like to make your own model rocket and then launch it a thousand feet into the air using a black powder engine? This is one of our objectives in Rocketry with Mr. Hren. After learning the science of what makes model rockets launch and rise into the sky, we will construct model rockets with parachutes and launch them. Join us as we construct and create model rockets and uncover how and why they work along the way.
