Journey into Rocketry

Now that you have completed Rocket Research 101, 102, and 103, you should be able to answer the following questions:

  1. Do I have to use water? Why can't I just use pressurized air?
  2. Is more water better?
  3. How can I modify the design of the rocket to increase the duration of the flight?
  4. What effect will the wind have on the way I launch the rocket?
  5. How will the wind affect the rocket after it is launched?
  6. How can I modify the design of the rocket to increase its chances of making a field goal or reaching a goal?

Complete the Post-assessment. Answer the questions to the best of your ability. Then compare your results with your Pre-assessment results to determine how much you have learned from your research.


Now build and launch a bottle rocket using your best design. To help you, we have provided an activity for you to follow. Select the following link and have fun!

How did the launch compare with the predicted launch given by WaterRocketSim?
