Stomp Rockets



Our next PHILS project was using a stomp rocket built by Chris Connors, who will help us build our own for our Cardboard Carnival. The creative part of this activity was designing our simple paper rockets. We found that the rocket that launched highest was Peter's as he had spent the time to create an actual point to the tip of his rocket and had a couple of fins on it.


The soda bottle was almost too brittle to be reliable as both bottles ended up splitting.

Next week we will build our own launcher!


Here's a link to Chris Connor's video explanation of his rocket launcher design:
