Racing Rockets

Next up for Miss Freeman’s class is rocket building.  Students are being Aerospace Engineers and designing the right amount of thrust to counter the drag of launching a rocket.

Students are using cardboard and paper to add to a water bottle to create a rocket. 

Hypothesis testing is the focus, as students determine the right amount of water in their bottle to ensure maximum pressure between air and water for succesful force upon launch.

Here the students are building their rockets, selecting appropriate cone design for the nose and fin size for the rockets.  They will then choose the right amount of water they think is right for their bottle.
