Experimenting with Model Rockets: Launch Day


The last thing we needed to do before we could launch the rockets was to insert the igniter into the engine. After this was done,
we stationed two people, one upwind and one downwind, to use their clinometers to take angular readings so that we could triangulate the highest point each rocket reached.

We announced each person, their rocket's name and what changes they made to their rocket to vary it from the control rocket.

The results of the launch? Which rockets went the highest? The results might surprise you. I will be posting about it next week.

  4. I love your new picture up at the top, it looks so happy.

    I think we're going to set out this afternoon early for Kung Fu and buy our models.
