So on the same day that I post about self-directed learning I come across an article in the Christian Science Monitor called In Science Class, It is Rocket Science. It's about a science class in Texas that works the entire year preparing launch several self-made rockets. So you're saying you've seen this before and probably have done it in your class. But these rockets are different--they are launched to the edge of space!
Read the article, it's a perfect example of how to develop self-directed learning.
