Rockets - Make & Take

Clock icon
16:00 – 18:00 7 Feb 2017

St George’s College, Weybridge

United Kingdom

The workshop will be a make-and-take, where you will build your own compressed air ‘rocket’ launcher, capable of firing projectiles over 100 metres, which you can take home with you for free.

Through modifications such as adding fins or altering the shape of the nose cone, students can theorise and then try out how a rocket’s flight path can be affected. Air pressure and angle of launch can also be altered, so you can use the compressed air launcher to teach topics such as pressure and projectile motion, or simply to engage students with the design of the rockets. Great for Science Week and Science clubs too!
