The end of the school year quickly approaches as our seniors start their final exams on May 29th. My physics classes are working on their Rockets project. They are almost done with the construction of the model rockets, are doing the physics analysis and calculations and we will be launching them next week, weather permitting.
Today I will be spending the day at CPEP Day. This is the final competition for the after school, pre-engineering program that I advise at my school. Students from around Connecticut will be competing in a variety of project competitions that they have been working on all year. It's a fun day, with students showing their hard work from the year. CPEP is a great organization and something all states should have.
