Local students get to launch rocket
Students from Spring Grove Area High School got to tour Aquaphoenix Scientific in Hanover today. The company is helping sponsor the student’s plan to build a rocket, supplying money and materials to make it. The project is part of a NASA program. Spring grove is one of only 27 high schools selected nationwide and the only school in Pennsylvania. The kids raised $13,000 dollars through book sales and corporate sponsors. They hope to launch their rocket at NASA’s launchsite in Huntsville, Alabama.
