All 4th grade students in Burlington had the opportunity to build and launch their own model rockets.  They learned about forces, motion and rocket design.  Rocket Day reinforced the tech & engineering standards in the Science Curriculum.  This yearly event has been widely attended and supported by Burlington parents. 

 

This year the event was generously sponsored by the United States Air force communication Group of Hanscom Air force Base.  BHS graduate, Amanda Gustafson, was instrumental in acquiring funds for the project.
