Rocket Science Workshop
Discover the dynamics of flight and find out how air resistance plays an important part. Explore how aeroplanes, helicopters and rockets fly and land safely. Count down to blast off and apply the science of air pressure to launch an awesome water bottle or air powered ‘stomp’ rocket!
Keywords: Newton’s third law of motion; action–reaction, parachutes, air resistance, aerodynamics, lift, drag, thrust, air pressure.
