ROCKETS AWAY!: EXPLORING THE SCIENCE OF FORCES AND MOTION

Recommended for teachers and other group leaders, this popular favorite is now up-to-date and more effective than ever at teaching the concepts of forces and motion via rocketry. The project's exciting conclusion is building and launching 2-liter bottle water rockets. A Rockets Away Student Logbook is required for each student. A bottle-rocket launcher is available from the OSU Extension, Hamilton County office.
