Rockets 2010 blast off in Fredericksburg
The public is welcome to watch as students from 41 schools from across Texas participate in Rockets 2010, beginning Thursday, April 22 through Saturday, April 24 at the Stewart Ranch in Willow City (daily from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.). This event centers on each school’s launch of miniature rockets as part of the students’ science class projects. One launch every half hour.
What started with Fredericksburg High School technology teacher Brett Williams’ SystemsGo (created to ignite a passion in students for the sciences) is now a highly successful program that has been adopted by schools across Texas and the U.S. The Rockets launch is in its fourth year and the number of schools participating has doubled since last year – verifying that that passion has indeed been ignited. For more information, including school launch schedules, call 830-997-3567. And to learn more about this exciting program, visit www.igniteeducation.org .
