Rocketeers ...

Why couldn't they have had final exams such as this when I was a student? I was in Grande Stadium's parking lot for most of Tuesday afternoon and evening, enjoying the semester finals for Coach Cowdrey's robotics class at San Jacinto Junior High School. Entertaining and enlightening ... an outstanding job by all involved!

Lab Space: Final assembly before launch, and for calculating the rocket's performance following launch and recovery.

That looks like a blast! A lot of fun, too.

Sorry I missed it.

George, yes it was! And it beats the heck out of theoretical exercises in the clasroom. I'll e-mail you next time they have something like this going on.
