Instructor and Astronomy Ambassador for MMAO Eliatosha Maleko writes, “For my school [this] was very, very fantastic because many students and teacher were amazed. From the beginning they didn’t know what was going on but later some of them were trying to guess [if] it is a boom. Later when I was trying to launch they realized that it was a rocket!
Second this project involves pupils from Standard 5 and 6 whereby they are about 10-14 years old. I decided to use pupils of this age because most of them the old enough to receive different instruction and old enough to participate in different creation activities, though all students are able to do that. Also for the lower classes they were observing and asking many questions about it.
Also I am happy that students [from] a nearby school were [also] here as it was the sports day and their teachers were amazed with this project. Therefore the project is very important to educational purposes due to the fact that it enhances curiosity and innovations to the students apart from receiving knowledge in the class room.
