Justin Johnson’s PTLW Aerospace Engineering scholars at NCHS designed their own rocket using the “open rocket” program and a simulator to test and modify the design to ensure stable flight. Scholars then built their rockets from scratch using balsa wood, super glue and cardboard tubing. Scholars also learned the procedures of launching a rocket safely. Scholars dealt with a few obstacles during the design and construction process, but figured out solutions and they all had a successful launch.
