Category: Summer Programs Air Pressure 101 and Bottle Rocket Build (online, ages 11+)

June 9, 2020 June 11, 2020

1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

In this class, we will explore the science of air pressure, aerodynamics, and Newton's Laws that will allow you to build your own air pressure rocket launcher and soda pop bottle rocket. Each day we will meet to brainstorm ideas, discuss your tasks, and problem-solve the challenges of building a soda pop bottle rocket launcher and rocket. On our last day, students will upload videos to showcase how fast, far, and high their rockets can travel. Students will need a bike pump or air compressor, PVC pipe, and other miscellaneous supplies that can be found at any hardware store.

The group will meet via video call (Google Meet/Zoom) on 6/9, 10, and 11.
