Launch Excitement with Water Rockets
Sanchez, Juan Carlos; Penick, John
Science Scope, v31 n2 p37-40 Oct 2007
Explosions and fires--these are what many students are waiting for in science classes. And when they do occur, students pay attention. While we can't entertain our students with continual mayhem, we can catch their attention and cater to their desires for excitement by saying, "Let's make rockets." In this activity, students make simple, reusable launchers and rockets for experiments while learning fundamental principles of physics. (Contains 2 figures, 2 resources and 4 online resources.)
