One of the highlights of the day at Roper Mountain Science Center was launching a rocket. Carter was chosen to put together the rocket, including all of the launching "stuff". He got to press the ignition switch and everything! He was so excited to do this!
Another great activity at Roper Mountain was weighing yourself on earth and comparing your weight to what you would weigh at different places in space. The boys had already participated in this activity at co-op, but this was a great reinforcement of those ideas!
