3rd-5th Grade STEMscopes – Stomp Rockets


Last week, 3-5 STEMscopes Summer Enrichment camp was all about movement. Student engineers planned, constructed, and improved balloon powered rockets, stomp rockets, and cotton ball catapults. The main event was the stomp rocket. Groups worked together to observe a prototype, sketch plans to replicate it, decide on supplies, and construct it. Once they tested it, they made improvements and retested their stomp rocket. The group had a launch party to see which rockets would go the highest. It was a great week of fun, learning, and lots of successful launches!
