This lesson plan is about the various facets of launching a spacecraft into space. Learners will look at the launch vehicle requirements for the Genesis spacecraft, then decide which rocket should be used from a list of several Delta rockets. Next, they will model the thrusters used for course corrections on the spacecraft, using a milk carton and water. In the third part of this activity, learners investigate how the size of the exit nozzle affects the force of a thruster. Includes a teacher's guide and students handouts. Video and audio clips are provided. This is lesson 4 of 8 from the Dynamic Design: Launch and Propulsion module.
