Space, Science, Songs & Secrets: The History of the last 100 years
To celebrate World Space Week the pupils researched, designed, made and then tested a rocket. We used vinegar and bicarbonate of soda as the propulsion method for the rockets. Please enjoy the video below to see how well the rockets launched.
The rockets were designed using plastic bottles. The main challenge was how to keep the rocket upright so the cork would not be touching the floor. Aerodynamic and aesthetic improvements were made.
