Prior to Wednesday October 30, Mrs. Rommel’s class learned about Newton’s law of motion and the basic structure of CO2 dragsters through instruction given by St. Ambrose professors, Dr. Opar and Dr. Serianz. They were able to create fully functioning dragsters that were later used to compete in a dragster race. On October 30, Mrs. Rommel’s class was able to apply their newly acquired knowledge at St. Ambrose University, during a pre-arranged dragster race. The race ended in a climactic success for everyone participating and was followed by a quick tour around the St. Ambrose campus.
