LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - It was a little windy Saturday, but was still a beautiful day to launch rockets.
Indiana Rocketry was out at the Purdy Sod Farms Saturday afternoon to shoot off some rockets and to teach kids how they work.
Children learned about different types of rockets and how to assemble them safely.
Members say they enjoy teaching kids about rockets because it's a good way to develop math and social skills, as well as to get a little exercise.
Saturday's event was free for children 18 and younger.
Indiana Rocketry members say they try to shoot off rockets at least once a month.
