My 8th grade teacher made a Crayola rocket. This was about ten years ago, but he probably built it years earlier. He was definitely a model rocket hobbyist. Although I believe he used a giant plastic crayon instead of building his own.
In fact, our entire class built model rockets out of paper for the body, balsa wood fins, and a straw for the guide rod. He also built a wind tunnel so we could test the balance of our rockets. Our little rockets used A-engine. The Crayola used a G-engine.
Totally awesome, you guys are brownncoats!
It has made my day to follow the link to the blog with the recipe for Ice Planets. Thank You.
