Bottle Rockets by Dr. Pat Hayes, IHMC

November 19, 2022

November's Science Saturdays featured one of our most popular topics, bottle rockets. Students learned what makes rockets fly. Then they worked in teams to make simple rockets out of empty plastic soda bottles. Their rockets were launched, propelled by water and compressed air. Excitement was experienced by all from students, parents, high school volunteers to IHMC staff, seeing the rockets soar to heights of 100 feet or more.
