Design and Flight: Aerospace Experience

Students in 5th grade have been engaged in a series of science, technology, enginereing and mathematic (STEM) lessons connected to the field of Aerospace.  Through hands-on projects that incorporated collaboration with peers and the construction of rockets and  wing design, students were assessed on their creative construction of an efficient rocket, succes of their rocket launch without fail and most importantly their ability to collaborate and work as a team. The end of the unit was complimented with an engaging opportunity to meet A-10 pilot Major Greg Krino.  Major Krino knew he wanted to be a pilot when he was in 2nd grade after watching Star Wars.  With the dream of being the next Luke Skywalker, Major Krino attended the Airforce Academy where he learned about flying. His story inspired our students to pursue their dream through their education, choosing the right friends who will be supportive, be a good person in the community and an athlete which promotes their health and happiness.
