Today we were lucky enough to have Engineering Science Quest visit us today to teach us all about "Rocking Rockets!"
We looked at the engineering design process, learned about the four forces of flight and how they act on a plane, and how those same four forces of flight work on a rocket.
Check it out!
Next the students had a very short time (about 15 minutes) to prepare bottle rockets for launching, using the constraints of: a single bottle, a single piece of cardboard, and two strips of tape. They were trying to make their bottle to most aerodynamic.
