Year 7 Bottle Rocket Challenge

Published on 03/04/18

Year 7 science club members took part in the annual Bottle Rocket Challenge at the end of the Spring Term. Pupils spent time preparing homemade rockets using empty drinks bottles and primed each one with vinegar so to create a chemical reaction for lift-off when combined with bicarbonate of soda before launch. Pupils gathered outside to see whose rocket would reach the greatest height and watched on excitedly as a few rockets shot into the air at great speed.
