Report on the Results:  Six people showed up for the event, however campus tourists and students walking around were interested in the project and started taking pictures and recording the launches. The rocket had no issues taking off at super high speeds however the wind of Chicago and the aerodynamics of the rocket, kept making it do flips before reaching the 400 ft expected altitude. Those that attended the event had a lot of fun, learned a little about rocket science and got motivated by seeing how easy it is to build a space related project. The impact of the event was very satisfying, a lot of people got to see it live through facebook, instagram and snapchat.
