MEETINGS

January 12th 2018

We are building parts for the Rocket

and a sleeve for the Payload bay

So, here Ted and Gus are working with Mr. Wilder to try and get a reading from the Arduino.

Ted is making the connections for the Arduino to the fan.

Sean is wiring up the fan for the payload which cools the shrimp

Ann and Gi are working with Mr. Daniels cutting metal piping to reinforce the rocket.

Second Student Launch
December 30, 2017

The cold and snow could not keep us from launching.

The fact that we left the launch controller could not keep us from launching.

Our second sub scale flight was successful!

We ended up at the local high school, and completed our flight!

The rocket's parachutes did not deploy correctly-and became a lawn dart.
