    As part of its 4-H summer fun program, the Anderson County extension office held a rocketry adventures class last Friday for children 9 and older.
    Students were taught simple physics and aero science before putting their knowledge to work to create bottle rockets, which they launched later in the day.  
    Each student could individualize his or her own rocket once they were given simple materials that included duct tape, 2-liter bottles and sand to weigh the bottle down.
