I have an interesting (and fun) job. This year I was tasked with organizing our Staff Retreat. Brainstorming with some colleagues of mine we came up with a great idea: building model rockets.
It was lots of fun (though I must admit I forgot just how high those damn rockets go, and how sometimes they don’t go up but rather go towards a large group of people).
I was busy attending to details of the event so I didn’t remember to take any pictures of rockets! Here’s some of the aftermath though.

Cool retreat idea!
Then there was the time I somehow managed to incorporate launching a model rocket into a 7th grade English paper. We all walked out to the giant field behind my middle school and I launched at least two of them. No mishaps (thankfully). Not sure what my teacher was thinking, except it was before people became quite so quick on the trigger with lawsuits.
This rekindled my great enjoyment in model rockets! Though you really do need a gigantic field to fire these things off correctly.
