District 54 students have a blast launching rockets
- Photos (4)
Students from Schaumburg Township Elementary District 54 launched 450 rockets throughout the day Tuesday as the culmination of a yearlong learning project.
The launches at Schaumburg's Olympic Park involved students from all 27 of the district's schools who began exploring aerospace engineering through the NASA Rockets curriculum in September.
Activities emphasized hands-on science, prediction, data collection and interpretation, teamwork and problem-solving. Students also learned background information about the history of rockets before they began work on launching their own.
The district partnered with Siemens Corporation for the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) initiative.
