Daniel Jaques, an Airspace Systems Educator working for NASA and Ignacio School District 11-JT, gives a talk to a group of kids and their parents about how to use the air powered, paper rocket launcher. The system is pressurized, which the kids and their parents used to shoot rockets as close to a target as possible. The event was a fundraiser for sending kids to space camp.
