Reach for the Stars

Students build and launch water rockets which are simple, cheap, safe, guaranteed to fly and can be launched repeatedly. Every rocket will fly! Students leave with a grasp of how forces act on the rocket at various stages in the launching, flight and landing process.

  • Students work in pairs, helping each other build and launch rockets.
  • Requires an area between 20 and 50 metres long by 20 metres wide: the school oval is ideal.
  • The aim is to hit a 5 meter Mars target.
  • Students are promised at least two launches of each rocket.
