Launching A Rocket; The Mission Of Wood River Senior


By Brittany Cooper

Ketchum, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Wood River High School was one of the first in Idaho to implement senior projects, even before they became a graduation requirement.

The student–led endeavor represents personal and academic growth.

We caught up with incoming senior Max Mihalec.

He took on the task of building a rocket.

"I decided that I am going to use a coil gun to launch this rocket and from there I will have a remote start from the canister which will then in turn fire the rocket. So far, I realized that was really ambitious and more than likely, that exact thing won't happen," adds Mihalec.

If you are interested in what's happening with his project, senior projects will be on display in December.
