Wednesday is Oak Tree’s Science Day.
One week we made homemade rockets. Items we used to make them were a box,
empty water bottles, various sized tubes, and bread bags.
Our Oak Tree rocket scientists cut holes in the box to put the water bottles through, this was our “rocket launcher” Our aerospace engineers then took the tube and attached one end to our rocket launcher and the bread bag rocket to the other end.
On the first attempt of our rocket launch, the bread bag rocket exploded! So one of the scientists came up with the idea to add another bread bag to the rocket to create a new layer
4/10 scientists said it would not work because they layers were not thick enough. The other 6 scientists said that it would work. Even though our aerospace engineers added the second layer, the bread bag rocket exploded again!
So they went back to work to figure another way to create a rocket.
“Well how about we use the big water bottles and attach the hose to them and use the smaller water bottles as the rocket?" said one of the rocket scientists.
The team got to work to start creating the new rockets.
With a big stomp, their new rocket design launched into the air!
It was a success!
We are looking forward to future Science Wednesdays!
