"My students enjoyed the activity so much that they asked to do it again the following day, making more and more modifications to their rockets and changing the amounts of fuel used. The looks on their faces when they achieved greater success than expected were priceless."
— Roosevelt Middle School, Vista CA
"Clouds are so easy to teach because all students have seen one before. The interesting part is having the students actively participate and stay interested in the topic. We had no issues engaging the students in this activity because they became cloud experts."
— Juliette Low Elementary, Anaheim
