Rocket Day 2011 November 21, 2011

Despite the wild weather Burlington experienced in October, our “Rocket Day” programs, sponsored once again by the Air Force Communication and Electronics Association were spectacular sights to see!

At every school students experienced an impressive showing of the forces of flight from Ms. Pavlicek and Mr. Musselman. A newly polished Rocket Car was on display to demonstarte Newton’s third law of motion. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction!

The assistance of Amanda Gustafson, Chip Grueter, Kristina Deer, and Kim Matthews was indispensable to the experience of our students as they assisted us with the safe firing of over three hundred rockets over the course of four Rocket Days. In addition, the RC plane demonstrations performed by Amanda and Chip were an incredible thrill, leaving all the Memorial students “ooh-ing and ahh-ing” at the impressive display of acrobatics performed by their aircrafts.

A number of our fourth grade teachers and parents took some great photos of the event. Check out their blog pages listed at the bottom for great photos. Also special thanks to Mrs. Weinberg for the wonderful animoto slideshow she made embedded below!

Thanks again to the Air Force Communication and Electronics Association for their generous support.
