The primary goals of this project were to help the students learn how to work as a team, how to finish what they started and how school can be fun.

Debbi Confer’s fourth grade class was divided into four teams, Da Noodlez, the Fluffer Puffers, the Ram Rockets and the Cool Kids. Each team, along with a few seniors, was presented with a rocket to build a week in advance from the launch date.
