Science Week - NASA Foam Rocket

16 Mar 2018

In Year 3 class Walthamstow Central have been investigating the NASA Foam Rocket. 

All pupils enjoyed making the rockets and then launched the rockets. 
Back in class, we discussed:

  1. What do you think the elastic band contains? 

  2. What do you think the energy is converted to? 

  3. Do you think the shape of the fins affect the level of air resistance on the rocket?

  4. What do you think overcomes the thrust of the rocket and makes it fall to the ground? 

  5. How could you have improved the distance your rocket flew?
