Title: Rock-A-Chute: Inventing the Model Rocket 
Theme: Technological Advances: Aviation Throughout the Years (Technology) 
Materials: We created this image using a batik resist process. We drew our image in pencil before using a combination of toothpaste and aloe vera lotion to protect the white fabric. After painting the cloth, we washed out the toothpaste/lotion to reveal the white lines. We finished the image using a sharpie to bring out the details.
About: Being from Norfolk, Nebraska we wanted to honor Orville Carlisle. Mr. Carlisle was a shoe salesman and master pyrotechnician who invented the first model rocket. His original Rock-A-Chute is on display at the National Air and Space Museum.
