3... 2... 1... BLAST OFF!  William Quintana, Jett Castillo, Nash Stone, and Abigail Osborne test their ablative shield to see if it will protect their egg-stronaut in Mrs. Harvell's class.
Mrs. Greer Harvell's eighth grade science students put their knowledge of physical and chemical properties to the test when they designed and tested an ablative shield that would protect their egg-stronaut upon re-entry to the earth's atmosphere.  Remarkably, their egg-stronaut survived!  It's a beautiful thing when content knowledge and creativity join forces to yield success.
