Did you ever want to build your own rocket and see it fly? These rocketeers are doing just that through the guidance of their teacher, Milt Wirth during the DIISD Summer Science Camp at the Willis Center. Jessica Oratch (center, back table) and Natalie Dykhuis (left, back table) learn the finer techniques of gluing fins to their rocket. In the foreground, Ren Thorne, in the right foreground, Brady Steinbrecher (back to picture) and Collin Olson (left foreground) prepare their rockets for flight. On Friday, the class traveled to Lilienthal Airport to launch their rockets, which offered excitement as they filled the air space with theaerodynamic flying machines. During the course of the week the students also built sun projectors to be viewed in the star lab, along with sun dials, aero-flyers and hero engine (device that illustrates how rockets can move in outer space where there is no air or no friction).
