Student teams construct water rockets from empty two-liter soft drink bottles, and qualify their rockets for flight by conducting string tests. Please follow all cautions provided in the text and build the rockets to specifications.
The "Water Rockets" activity is from the Rockets Educators Guide. Although grade levels are suggested, small modifications will enable more complex activities to be used successfully with other grade levels for observation, demonstration or complete lessons.
