Pretty easy, overall.
I loved this class because it got me into what I am considering in perusing in my career, physics. In this class, I built rockets and parachutes. I got to experiment and see designs worked best and why. I had a lot of fun in that class and learned things that I will never forget, like a octagonal shape for a parachute is better than a circle because it lets the air out more evenly.
The highlights were definitely building rockets and parachutes. I built lots of different rockets and got to test and see which designs were better and which didn't work and perfect the perfect rocket that went up the highest and had the best parachute deploy to have the safest landing. I learned two things in this class; one, that a good rocket has a very narrow nose and three fins; two, that I love building things and it is something I am considering on doing in my career.

Advice for students:
Just take it easy and have fun. This is a relaxed class to help you learn and discover. I learned quite a bit about rockets and physics but also about myself. It's not hard so if you decide it's not for you, then it won't be hard to finish. But if you end up loving it, then you can go all the way and pour your soul into your rockets and parachutes.
