Students compete in a design challenge to bid on a NASA rocket contract, complete with test launch! Bid, budget supplies and materials, design and test a rocket to see which team has what it takes to win the contract. Students work cooperatively in teams to use math, engineering, and interpersonal skills to plan, construct, and test paper rockets on a high-powered air launcher. Please note this is a 90-minute lab. Be sure to ask us about a special discount on our Dawn of the Space Age planetarium show to complement this lab!
