Students Learn About Gravity

In cooperation with soapboxderby.org, we are working with a  team of school children to build a Soap Box Derby racing car using a standard kit.  Our team will compete in education races around the country against other school teams. Learn more at Soap Box Derby

Physics is Fun!

We worked with a local middle school to teach Physics through model rocketry.  Students experimented with rocket “wing design”, modifying rocket kits to see how various orientations impacted flight path. More than 30 students spent time building, flying and taking data on the flights.

Women in Engineering

Next Phase supports the University of Maryland, College Park’s annual STEM event.  We celebrated National Women in Engineering week by spending a fun day with very bright young ladies!
