As promised, here are some pictures of me launching rockets with some of the kids at our elementary school, Lake Michigan Catholic. I discovered, in testing this page, that it may not display properly in older versions of Netscape. Sorry!
These are solid-fueled model rockets: the one in this picture can fly up to 800-1000 ft.
Needless to say, the kids had lot's of fun, and they even learned something. doing things like that isn't the reason I became a priest, but it's one of the great fringe benefits!
Finally, here's a bonus picture: This is me preaching at one of our all-school masses.
