Third graders at Springfield Plains Elementary spent Friday putting together rockets and watching them fly in the sky.
For the kids to was a chance to build and decorate their own rocket.
For teachers it was a way to get the students to use math and sciences skills they learned in the classroom and understand the importance of learning those subjects.
“It was neat for each child to make their own,” said teacher, Kerry Whaley.
Whaley and teacher Dee Smith, Rachel Raddatz, and Linda Linenger saw fliers from Project Inspire.
Project Inspire offers projects and activities to inspire students to go into the math and science fields
They received a grant from the Clarkston Foundation that allowed every student a chance to make their own rocket.
