Rocket Modelling

Rocket Modelling Workshop

Water Rocket with Parachute Landing:

When someone mentions bottle rockets, Do you envision placing a firecracker attached to a stick into a glass bottle and launching it? A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass.

Water rockets at schools help students understand the principles of aeronautics. Designing, building, flying & landing a Water Rocket provides students with a real-world application of the scientific method.
