Ideas take flight at Camp Discover

Day One of Rocket Science was a blast! Within the first hour on Tuesday, Camp Discover students were busy putting together rockets for a launch. Instructor Ecil Miller is helping them learn about rockets the fun way – by building! Once the rockets were ready, the class went outside for a test launch.

As instructed, each student put the rocket into the launching station, grabbed hold of the controls, and loudly shouted with others joining in, “Five, four, three, two, one!” The rockets took off smoothly, flying two or three stories into the air before tumbling to an empty parking lot. Applause and cheers followed by all the spectators.

We could hear the students discussing who had bragging rights for the highest launch. As Ecil Miller wrote, “It’s always a good day to be a rocket scientist.”
