The famous Rocket Club has launched once again at the William S. Cohen School. Under the guidance of mission controller Mr. Ron Bilancia, the young rocketeers meet once a week for five weeks in the fall to assemble and launch their model rockets. There are also discussions about some of the science around rocket flight. There is no question that the students always have a real blast!
