Description:

This is a brief overview of how I facilitate the launch of student designed bottle rockets. I highly encourage you to provide your students an opportunity to create their own rockets. This project motivates my students to truly invest in the Laws of Motions lessons and makes the engineering design process relevant for them. Finally, this project also makes the scientific process of hypothesis-test-observation-modification real and applicable for students.
