Bottle Rockets Fly High in Physics

Students launch their bottle rockets in Mr.Williams Physics class

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.
