On October 20, eighth grade students launched homemade rockets with Mr. Hedden. They gathered data about the actual height that the rockets flew, and in science classes they collected data on the engine's force so they can compare the actual height to the predicted height based on the force of the engine. This was followed by a live Zoom on October 21 with bluShift Aerospace founder Sascha Deri who has ties to  Telstar alumni, Greg Koch. bluShift Aerospace is a Maine based commercial rocketry company focused on low Earth orbits using bio-derived fuels instead of petroleum.   8th grade teachers Renee Charette and Peter Hedden
