Ashland Middle School students blast "bottle rockets" into the sky on Wednesday. They were completing the collection of data for the Oregon Benchmark — Science Inquiry requirement. The students are a blend of 7th- and 8th-graders from Team Amistad at AMS. On Wednesday, they finished their physics unit and completed a unit in Astronomy in the fall. The students needed to complete another science inquiry write-up. "This activity was a great wrap-up of all three events," Kristi Healy, an Ashland Middle School teacher.
