Albany - Some of the nation's youngest rocket scientists tested their skills Friday. The Young Astronauts Club at Deerfield Windsor School, in Albany, held their 24th annual Rocket Launch.
Fifth grade students spent about six months building and designing the rockets, coming twice a month to after school work sessions. Friday, they launched them to see who's would go the farthest.
"In 1984 President Reagan, to encourage kids to get involved in math and science, started this program. We started in 1985, so we're a charter member," said Lower Campus Director Buddy Grimes.
This was the first year in a while that all the rockets launched, but there were some hesitant rockets.
