K-12 Private Christian School in Northwest Houston, TX

Rocket Science

The engineering class explored the field of aerospace engineering. A calculated worksheet activity demonstrated the possible height and projection of different model rockets based on the type of rocket and engine used. After performing the calculations, the class chose specific model rockets and engines to assemble and then launch. The class experienced many troubleshooting lessons as some rockets did not launch immediately. The class will end the unit of aerospace engineering with a field trip to Space Center Houston.
