Jim Lenz Rocket Making Workshop.

We had an excellent Rocket-Making workshop at the Manitowoc Public Library with Jim Lenz earlier this monty!  After a brief discussion about physics Jim Lenz carefully instructed us about how to make paper rockets. Then we journeyed to the grounds outside of the library to blast them off with Jim's air compressor rocket launcher!

The Herald Times Reporter created a wonderful video about our experience. Check it out!

We launched our rockets off outside of the library!

This is a shot of one of the rockets exploding mid-launch!

The rockets easily flew 80-100 yards!

The End.
