Maker Faire Detroit 2014 | Part 2

One area of interest to me is model rocketry. Every year my kids make model rockets and we launch them at school. This model rocket group from the Detroit area had a very nice display of large diameter rockets that I may try to incorporate into my middle school science classroom this year.

Making rockets can be either from a specific set of directions or when a child has the basic idea of how to make a rocket, they can create their own using paper towel rolls, toilet paper rolls, or Pringles containers. I've had some very nice homemade rockets made by students who created their own designs.
