Students make a rocket from scrap paper, launch it and see how it flies.

They then compare their rocket with their friends’ to decide how they could make theirs fly better. The workshop ends with a grand rocket launch to identify the most successful designs.

This workshop meets CDT and Science targets as well as promoting creativity.

This workshop can be run in a number of ways, a basic version can be delivered to several groups but it can be extended to become a rich task with measurement calculations and application of mathematics if time is available.
