Rocket science is not Rocket science

Unit = Students build their own water rocket. First lesson: building a ramp to launch paper balls. Students will explore principles of projectile motion by exploring different angles, force and distance. The learning will be gamified to improve understanding of the mathematical & physics principals. This activity will form the foundation for students to identify their own problem applying the theory, work collaboratively to create a prototype of their own rocket, build it, test it and present it. Prize for best.
