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 start with a WebQuest on NASA's site learning about rockets, the physics of rockets, and model rockets. Then they design and build a model rocket, analyze it and do all the calculations to predict the altitude it should reach. Then we launch them and track the actual altitude. It's fun, a great way to apply many physics topics into one project, and a great way to end the year.
