Youth in Mrs. Wendy Baures’ sixth grade science classes at Cochrane-Fountain City Schools designed and built aerodynamic crafts designed to deliver a payload of food to natural disaster victims and respond to a fictional scenario: A natural disaster has left people without food on a remote, isolated Pacific island, and the youth have been asked to build a rocket that can be launched from the mainland, travel over the ocean and deliver high-energy food to the population. The lesson was conducted in conjunction with Buffalo County University of Wisconsin-Extension and 4-H National Youth Science Day, which is an interactive learning experience that gets youth excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Sixth graders’ rockets were launched September 16 on the Cochrane-Fountain City School playground. Students’ designs were creative and effective.
