First, I used to do a 6th grade science week on rocketry at the Catholic elementary school my 4 sons attended ( Holy Family in Shorewood IL).

These next few are from May 2007. I had the kids build Quest Starhawks.

Here, I am showing this boy how to hook up the ignitor clips.

BTW....that is a home built launch table I built 25 years ago. Still in use. I need to fix the third launch rod holder...

After the kids were done with their two launches, I fired a couple....This is my Oracle.

I think every kid in the class took off after the Oracle after I let the girl in the previous photo launch it.

I had them all build the original Alpha, and we measured the altitude. I had told the boys that the most careful craftsman will get the best altitude and the winner got another kit to build.
