Great Rocket Challenge

Rocket Science

With a small budget students must work together to design, construct and launch a rocket to 'land' on the Moon. The craft must be designed based on strict criteria, and using only materials purchased with their budget. Which team will win the great rocket race?

Working in teams of 3 to 6, children work together to find out what variables influence the speed and the distance their rocket will fly. Students complete the workshop by competing to see which rocket goes to the Moon and then share their results with the other groups.
