Rockets – Make and Take

Netherhall School, Maryport, Cumbria CA15 6NT

Build your own “rocket” launcher. You can then use the compressed air launcher in the classroom to engage students with the design of the rockets. 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.

The session will also involve a discussion of the usefulness of different models of electric current and the physics that can be used with the rocket launcher.

Event type: Workshop
Organised by: Institute of Physics
