Made of a Straw

The young scientists experimented with Newton’s Third Law of Motion while making “straw rockets” at Logansport Library’s STEM program recently.  Using the power of their lungs, they launch their rockets into flight. 

The library said, “We constructed a larger paper rocket and sent it into flight outdoors.  The rocket went out of control and came to rest on the library roof.  Thankfully Ms Kaylie was able to retrieve the rocket.  The rocket survived with minimal damage and went on several more flights.
