Bonham blasts off

By  | 

BONHAM -- Rockets flew through the Bonham sky today, all constructed by kids. The Bonham Science Camp finished the week Friday afternoon by launching rockets.

Each elementary student made the contraptions out of poster board and a plastic soda bottle. The kids also learned about comets, sails, and made green and pink-colored slime.

Colleen Coonrod, a Bonham High School science teacher, puts on the camp to get kids interested in science before they are in high school.

The highlight of the week is the rocket launch.

"It was really cool because it went so high and everyone was like, WOO HOO!" said Erika Porter, a fourth grader.

This is the second year for the camp, bringing 67 kids from all over Fannin County.
