STEM Club Performs Rocket Launches

After almost two weeks of waiting for the rain to clear, the middle school STEM Club held their rocket launch on Tuesday, February 26.

STEM Club, which explores careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math with multiple hands-on activities, has been constructing their rockets with the guidance of faculty members Lisa Shapiro, Joanna McLucas, and Brian Haffey. Mr. Haffey, who teaches Honors Aerospace Science in the high school, assisted the students with safely mounting the rockets on the launch stand and operating the controls while Mrs. Shapiro showed them how to add the propellant.

It was an excited culmination of their hard work and a great introduction to this branch of study!
