Pop bottle rockets, baking soda and vinegar volcano eruptions and mousetrap cars; hands-on learning in science classrooms at its best. They're projects that as kids we all knew and enjoyed because of the interactive learning environment and the excitement built when the building is all done. Now, Forestview Middle School has taken that excitement thousands of feet higher with its new after-school High Altitude Balloon Launch Club, taking place this spring.
"I've always wanted to take kids to that next level," said Cory Olson, seventh grade engineering teacher and one of the leaders of the newly adapted club. "To be able to offer kids that get excited about math and sciences another outlet and provide them with hands-on learning techniques such as this, it's very exciting."
