Defining the Problem:

Our problem would be that we need to make a rocket to reach exceeding limits. it has to be aerodynamic.

Brainstorming:

Fins for type 1 model.
The Body of type 1.
Fins for type 2.
Body for type 2.

Criteria and Constraints:

For the criteria:

I would need to get the right materials in order to do anything with the rocket.

For the constraints:

Money would definitely be a problem and materials

Exploring Possibility:

For type 1. I tried to get the best looking and aerodynamic model as possible. Which the fins give it a good drag ratio as it is, the bottle is well shaped and well go high enough to reach the expectations of what is needed..

For type 2, i tried to go with the more manufactured look and feel. But with this model it didn't work as well as I had hoped it would actually deploy but it did not. The bottle was too big and the fins weren't exactly fitting to the bottle like I wanted it too.
