Hands On Workshop – Space Launch Challenge

How do scientists and engineers go from idea to end result? By applying concepts and rigorous experimentation. In this workshop, students will apply basic concepts of physics and design to prototype and launch a simple rocket. 
 
NOTE: Groups of three students will work together and each group is required to supply their own 2-litre plastic pop bottles. Program has an outside component - rain or shine.
 
Parents/adults are welcome to participate in the workshop, space permitting.
