Prepare to Launch: Model Rocketry Club members sophomore Adam Wilmes and senior Michael Nanaji sand a rocket’s nose cone using a band saw and drill press. Club sponsor Thomas Maxam meets with students every Wednesday after school in room B207 to construct rockets for future competitions. It’s not too late to join, Maxam said. In 2003, the club won 17th in a national competition, and the members hope to qualify for nationals again this year. Additional plans include visiting the Wright-Patterson Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio.
