Water Bottle Rocket Competition
http://cchsliu.org/w...
Participants will design, construct, and test a rocket made from a 2 liter plastic soda bottle. The goal is to design a rocket that will remain aloft for a maximum period of time. Every group will launch their rocket 3 times. Do not use the same rocket body (2 liter bottle) for more than two launches. The first 2 launches will be test launches. Your group must choose one or more aspects of the rocket to test. After each test launch you must analyze what hurt your rocket’s performance the most and redesign it before the next launch day. Your goal is to have the best possible rocket by the final launch day.
