Ms. Leslie and Ms. Eileen are hosting a five week STEAM club during lunch recess. Students learned about gravity, Newton´s laws and chemical reactions. Photos show the first week where students designed paper airplanes to maximize thrust, lift, gravity while minimizing drag. Next, students sent balloons along a string to create motion using the air released. Most recently, students built a launch pad, using the design and redesign process, then tested their chemical (vinegar and baking soda) rockets on their custom launch pads. Success was had by and the club applauded each team as their rocket launched into the air. What a fun way to learn during recess!
