Have a blast in this exciting outreach program! Students will use 21st century problem solving and collaborative skills to design, engineer and launch a water rocket.

Looking for a job that’s out of this world?

Learn about the (not so short) history of rockets and the important role they play in our modern society. Students will explore the principles of gravity, thrust, lift, and drag using the engineering design process to create and improve the stability and performance of their rocket.


Please note:

This program is offered only as a 2 hour outreach for a maximum of 26 students per session. Access to clear open space is required – the school oval is ideal.
