KING GEORGE. Va. (June 29, 2017) - Middle school students fire water rockets they built with fuel load to maximize height at the 2017 Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division sponsored STEM Summer Academy, held June 26-30. Camp activities also included ten robotic challenges; exploring epidemiology; building and destructively testing a tower from balsa wood with the goal of maximizing the strength to weight ratio; predicting the number of each color of M&Ms in a large bag after compiling statistics on numbers in smaller bags; and building a boat out of foil and straws with the aim of maximizing its cargo carrying capacity.
