Non-Kit Rocketry

Students at the Richmond County Technical Career Magnet School are taking off with non-kit rocketry! Students study the design and engineering of rockets, making their own to launch with recyclable materials. Seniors Rujean Verdree and Chris Jones incorporate all elements of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (S.T.E.A.M) into the creation of their rockets; using everything from cardboard to Kripsy Kreme donut boxes to engineer the perfect aeronautical design.
