Wellesley’s Hardy School students as part of a physical science learning activity took the educational experience out of the classroom and onto school grounds last week, where they had a blast launching their own water bottle rockets high into the sky. Through the project, the school’s K-5 kids students investigated how pushes and pulls are responsible for the motion of objects, and what happens to an object when force is applied. Plus, launching water bottle rockets was a whole lot of fun.
For the experiment, an annual end-of-year highlight, Polar Beverages donated all the 2-liter bottles, a contribution facilitated by Roche Bros.
Hardy kids were helped out by members of Kickstart STEM, a science-based group of Wellesley High School student leaders.
Thanks to Hardy parent Tanya Auger for these swell shots.
Looks like fun. Too bad the new Hardy will not have any open space for this type of activity. Perhaps the new school should be built on the existing footprint. This is feasible considering the drop in enrollment solves for the swing space issue.
