Get S.E.T.

How Much Energy Does it Take to Launch a Rocket into Orbit?

Le Grand High School serves a diverse student population that is limited in technology-based activities in their curriculums. The Get S.E.T. Engineering Service Learning team partnered with the Le Grand physics department to develop and implement a rocket project to teach topics such as acceleration, conservation of energy, and engineering design to about 150 students each year. The Egg Rocket project was tested, assessed and delivered in March of 2020.
