Robert Williams, a Physics teacher at Oak Hills High School, launched bottle rockets with his classes as a part of an assignment. The class had a launcher from the lab that is operated by a bicycle pump to allow their rockets to fly. Each group made their rockets from scratch with the key material being a plastic bottle. Students filled their rockets with water in order to launch and timed how long their bottle rockets were in the air. They were able to make changes needed for longer air time over the week.

    The positive outcome of this project was seeing how a simple bottle can be turned into a rocket and be launched way up into the air.

    A lot of people say that Physics is a hard class and it can be but ultimately we get to do really fun projects like this.

    A really fun project. The most entertaining part of this project was when a group launched their rocket and it ended up landing in a tree.
