6th Grade STEAM students launch into the new school year

 Mr. Dehetre shared the following information about an exciting project:
Sixth grade students in Mr. Dehetre's STEAM lab began the school year by building solid propellant rockets from scratch. The photographs below show students making the parachutes for their rockets' safe recoveries. Once built, students will launch their rockets in Winslow field. Rocketry is just one of several activities that support our students' learning about gravity, trajectory, and tribology (the study of friction.)
