Stomp Rockets

Rockets play important roles in our daily lives. Just ask the first Hispanic woman in space, Dr. Ellen Ochoa. Everything from cell phone communication to cable television has been simplified due to rockets taking satellites into space. What separates rockets from most flying machines is their launch, which takes propulsion. Propulsion is the action of driving or pushing forward. Let’s create our own rockets and then we will launch them to honor the first Latina American in space, Astronaut Ellen Ochoa.
