Design Challenge: Making a Bottle Rocket
In this design challenge, your child will be asked to create a bottle rocket using typical household items. The list of materials includes everything they will need to create and launch a rocket, and we have listed a variety of ingredients your child can use to make “fuel.” Not all of the listed ingredients will necessarily be successful in launching the bottle--the goal is to allow your child to experiment with different mixtures until they find a combination that works. How your child chooses to launch the bottle is up to them, but we have given instructions for you to help guide them along the design thinking process. Make sure to supervise as your child blasts off into this science experiment of fun!
