Bottle Rockets

@lmcintrye @jheinrich we have been in the process of making our fins for our practice rocket

 

@lmcintrye @jheinrich we are in the process of hot gluing the fins onto our practice rocket

 

@lmcintyre @jheinrich practice rocket weighs 122 grams and is ready for round 1!

 

@lmcintrye @jheinrich we have done our string test and it works and it is good to launch

 

@lmcintrye @jheinrich we did our practice launch and it failed. The wings malfunctioned and fell off at flight and we discovered there was a hole in the chamber bottle and it leaked

Above, we removed the top of the bottle.

Below, we have our bottle lid removed and have a sponge ball on top so when it hits the ground it will hit the ball and then it will not effect the rocket as much and so there’s not as much damage done

Above, the wings are glued onto a separate bottle so it did not affect the water chamber.
