Bottle Rockets by Dr. Pat Hayes, IHMC
September 24, 2016
September Science Saturday was Bottle Rockets, presented by Dr. Pat Hayes. About 60 students in grades 3, 4, and 5 participated. They worked in teams to build and launch bottle rockets. This topic routinely results in howls of delight when rockets ascend several hundred feet into the air before dropping back down into the parking lot, onto the roof, or into the adjacent cemetery. The current season of Science Saturdays is sponsored by the Kugelman Foundation. The generosity of our sponsors makes it possible for IHMC to offer these events free of charge to all attendees.
