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.
