Reflection on Rocketry

Today we presented our rocketry slides. Everyone was divided into groups of four. We had to build and launch rockets. We did this three times so we could improve our rocket each time and while doing this we made a slide show showing the process of the rockets being made, launched, designed and graphed. Today three groups presented the groups that presented today were: Rockets Inc., Radical Rockets and Rocket Crushers. I am in Radical Rockets.

I was super nervous because I was scared I was going to mess up. I was expecting it to go a lot worse than it did. I was scared I wouldn’t remember my lines or forget what slide I was supposed to narrate. Once my group started to present I felt a little bit better but I was still super nevous something was going to go wrong. I was also nervous that the video of launching our rockets wouldn’t play because that had happened once or twice while practicing.

I think that it went better than I ever thought it would go. I am happy that my group got to go today because now I don’t have to worry about it. I really enjoyed this unit and thought that it was so cool how we were able to build rockets that were actually successful. It was exciting to present in front of our classmates, parents and teacher.
