Students first read an article on how SpaceX's reusable rockets could revolutionize space travel. They then conduct an investigation with straw rockets and a rubber band to test how elastic potential energy is converted into gravitational potential energy. Student then read an article on the new SpaceX rocket design that could take hundreds of people to Mars and discuss where humans should explore in outer space.
