Introduction Water Rocket
The main emphasis is on the understanding of a model rocket, its aerodynamic structure, concept of pressure, Pascal’s law and its application in energizing of the model rocket. Students will be guided in the workshop to make their own water rocket by using ordinary household material like carbonated bottles, plastics files, polythene bags etc to decipher the fundamentals of projectile motion and the factors affecting on it.
Learning outcomes according to national curriculum of general science
- The activity will be beneficial to develop the concept of basic aerodynamics and its application.
- Working principle and uses of pressure and Pascal’s law.
- The workshop will also be helpful to the students to learn about projectile motion, its factors and significance.
- Age: 7-12 years
- No. of students: 30 (maximum)
