Welcome to the 2014 USTA Conference!!!

Utah Valley Convention Center - Provo, UT

We have worked hard to make sure that there is something for every science teacher at every hour of the conference.  Please make sure that after a breakout session you take the time to fill out a survey.  Every survey you fill out is an entry into our raffle for some great prizes to use in the classroom and on your free time.

STEM-tacular Paper Rockets

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Have fun with us as we show you how to teach many science concepts using paper rockets. We will actually make the rockets in class and show you how easy they are to do, whether you are indoors or out.  We will show you how easy it is to make your own launchers and the other activities available with them.  Your students will be able to make rockets in 3 minutes allowing them more time to test their rockets.  This will be one of the activities students will come back and tell you they remember.  Once you have your launcher all you need is paper, 1/2 inch pvc pipe, scissors, tape, pennies, and a bicycle pump. It is amazing how easy these rockets are to make.  Your students will learn basic science process skills to detailed physics concepts.
