LEROY — Rockets were being launched one after the other at Pine River High School last Friday, Oct. 28. It wasn’t used as a government test site or some sort of a proving ground, but it was a neat experience for a number of physics students to see if their studies and hard work paid off. And it appeared to be fun.
The rockets were built from kits that consisted of popsicle sticks, glue and tissue paper. They had four days in which to construct them, according to teacher Terry Martin, and some were still making adjustments just before launch, or after they were unable to get liftoff first try.
