Local Students Have a Blast Learning About Rockets
10/15/2013 (Updated 10:46:39 PM)They didn't go into orbit, but they were soaring high into the skies over Vestal Tuesday evening.
It was part of Mathways to the Stars program through Richard T. Stank Middle School. Tuesday night, the kids made their way to the Kopernic Observatory.
The students took part in the event, which melds math and science into their studies.
A melding the students find exciting.
"Yeah it's a lot more fun you get to interact with everything and you get to see what happens instead of watching a video and not using tools to find out what it is," said Adam Srednicki a sixth grader from Susquehanna Valley.
Part of Tuesday night's lesson--the different parts of the rockets, and calculations of the rocket's altitude.
