Build and Launch the Perfect Rocket with Inquiry and Collaboration

Discover how easy and fun it is to take a science inquiry approach to rocket design. Participants will identify the optimal rocket design and then work in groups to build rockets and collect data after each launch. The class collaborates on data analysis before designing, building and launching the ultimate rocket. Participants take home their constructed stomp rocket launcher for use in their classroom.

For the ultimate rocket, all participants will make and take their own stomp rocket launcher. This stomp rocket launcher template can easily be duplicated for use in yourt classroom with material from your local hardware store.

Event Schedule:

  • 8:30 - 9:00: Arrival and light breakfast
  • 9:00 - 9:30: Inquiry Approach to Rocket Design
  • 9:30 - 10:30: Rocket Design and Variables: A Collaborative Build
  • 10:30 - 11:00: Stomp Rocket Build and Test

After this workshop, you will have the lesson plan and the materials to implement this in your classroom the very next day.
