Free Community Event
The engineering process can start at home, research rocket design, and understand what wing shapes, a nose, weights, or other items may affect the design of your vehicle. Participants are encouraged to pre-build their 2-liter bottle rocket before launch day, and test it at the event. Rockets can be tested and adjusted on-site and launched repeatedly for the best performance. Water launchers are provided for all participants.
Supplies/Building Materials Provided by the Cube onsite:
• Foam core material for fins
• Snow cone cups
• Plastic bags for parachute materials
• Water and Water Launchers for testing
Take rocketry to the next level.
