Student contestant releases the rocket for his team
Baton Rouge, LA - A video of the Southern University Ag Center's 2014 National 4-H Youth Science Day has been posted to the Center's YouTube page. The video documents the events which took place on October 8, 2014 in the Southern University Seymour Gym. Nearly 100 students in 5th-9th grades from Southern University Laboratory and Park Ridge Magnet Schools demonstrate the aerodynamic design of their self-propelled rockets.
The theme for the event was “Rockets to the Rescue,” and the experiment challenged youth to use aerospace engineering to design a rocket that could deliver food to victims of a natural disaster.
Students also donated non-perishable food items to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank as part of their experiment.
