Our 5th grade enrichment students used the Engineering Design Process to come up with an air rocket design. They then built their rockets and launched them using a PVC pipe launcher and air compressor. The launcher was filled to approximately 50 psi, then the students counted down and opened the valve to launch their rockets. It was a perfect morning for rocket launches! They will now use their first flight as a basis to redesign their rocket for the final flights next week.
