‘Stomp-Rockets’ that can shoot up to 50m high! This IS Rocket Science!
Students will learn about the link between climate and energy by designing their own stomp-rocket. They see how clever energy storage and conversion can deliver clean and free power, capable of fuelling the world. They will discover how stomp-rockets work by:
Converting stored energy (trapped air in a 2 litre bottle)
Creating moving energy (the rocket thrust)
Applying pressure (stomping on the bottle, which is connected to the rocket!!)
Investigate forces and simple machines
Investigate Newton’s Three laws of motion
Become aware of the relationship between force, mass and acceleration.
Become aware of friction, resistance and air resistance
Become aware of renewable energy and storage
All materials are supplied.
