On Saturday, Rocketry Club members bundled up and braved chilly temperatures in order to test their latest rocket design. This launch was just one of many successful rocket launches undertaken by the Club, which is part of Fishburne’s growing STEM Initiative. This is the latest launch to test designs in the team's effort to qualify for the national Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) competition.

STEM In Action at Fishburne Military School
This week at Fishburne Military School, the Corps of Cadets was challenged to spend at least one hour exploring the world of coding. The Cadets showed remarkable interest and some soon began displaying a natural talent for learning new 21st-century languages like JAVA and HTML. Due to Cadet enthusiasm, the week has already begun to spark some changes in coursework.
