pequena capoeirista

signGirl participated in her first batizado (capoeira initiation ceremony) with Capoeira MalĂȘs DC, along with a performance and troca de corda (changing of cords).

the kids planned an amazing show with a bit of history of capoeira, and showcasing how it has both artistic and scientific elements.

the awarding of cords was also a lot of fun because of all the playing, music and singing. even spectators have a responsibility to add to the energy of the circle by clapping and singing.

you’ll see what I mean:


space science and engineering

these two constructed rockets with various penny payloads…

and tested them with a rocket launcher.
