BOULDER JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER


ROCKET DAY

To celebrate the launch of the Boulder JCC's gorgeous new building, we hosted a rocket day with their Cherryvale Summer Camp. Elementary students learned about the history of rockets and designed their own rockets for our powerful pneumatic launcher. Some rockets soared 300 ft. above the new grounds for an exciting afternoon of STEAM enrichment. Even the counselors from the University of Colorado Boulder got into the action. We tested different variables - from air pressure to rocket body designs - to improve performance.

Our visit was timed Monica & Tyler Aiello's inaugural gallery exhibition Confluence presented at this gem of a cultural institution.
