CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Three, two, one. Cape, we have ignition. Not Cape Canaveral but, Cape Girardeau!

Stacy Stapleton's Jefferson Elementary third grade class earned money over the course of the school year in order to purchase the parts needed to build their rockets. 

They fired them off on Thursday morning.

The students learned about measurements, energy, force, teamwork and distance. 

"It was just a great end of the year project," said Stapleton.

The students had a blast!
