Rocket Science
Nick H.

Session 1

We learned Newton's laws of motion. we also learned how a rocket achieved flight. We also explored the development of rockets.

Session 2

In session 2 we learned about the forces of flight. we also designed the fins of our rocket. We also learned about the early history of rockets.

Session 3

We cut out the fin design to our rocket. And we also got to decorate it. We also learned about various designs for rockets.

Session  4

In session 4 we attached the fins to our rocket. We learned about the factors that affect the stability of a rocket in flight. And we glued the air tube to the rocket.

Session 5

In session 5 we attached our transition cone to the rocket. We were also able to customize our rocket. And we learned about total impulse.

Session 6

In session 6 we leaned about the effects of a rocket ballast. We were also able to learn about aerodynamics on a rocket. And we added the final adjustments to our rocket.

Session 7

In session 7 we took the post test. We also added final adjustments to our rocket to make it ready to launch. We then learned more about rocket history.

A Rocket Scientist

Rocket scientists generally work on the design and testing of rocket-propelled vehicles. They have to be extremely smart because that is where the saying, "its not rocket science", comes from. But with all their hard work it is very rewarding, they make 100,000 dollars every year.
