Hello MSSM Community!
This week has been unusual for MSSM. Due to an outbreak of the flu, all of the students have been sent home a week early. However, they are still participating in classes through Google Meet. While this style of classes is unusual, the MSSM students are making the best of it, and it is an interesting experiment in using long-distance education strategies. Classes started back up at 10:30 on Monday, and even band and chorus will hold classes this week.
Over the weekend the MSSM Rocketry Club launched two rockets, the Space Penguin and the Influenza “the Flew.” The successful launches were watched by two certified members of the National Rocketry Association, Mr. Berz, the Rocketry Club advisor, and a student who had launched earlier this year. The launch took almost three hours on top of about two feet of snow. The Flew went 635 feet high and the Space Penguin about 729 feet. Both rockets had G motors. The Rocketry Club is also preparing for the graduation launch of the Sparrow which has an M motor.
That’s all for this edition of “So This Happened at MSSM”
