Our 8th grade Earth Science students are studying engineering design and rocket propulsion! (Is that cool or what?!) Students designed and built a rocket using only a two-liter bottle, poster board, and tape. They had to research rocket propulsion and fin design, then apply what they learned to their own rocket with a goal of having it stay in the air for five seconds. Launch day was AWESOME! Now that they are done with the first prototype, they will go back and improve on their design.
