Rocket Transportation

Upper elementary and middle school children become aerospace engineers as balloon rockets are tested for the weight of their payloads. They construct the rockets, test and record data, and then explain ways to increase capacity. Consider this exciting exploration as part of your space science curriculum. Be sure to include some discussion about gravitaional pull and air friction as forces that counteract the thrust of the rocket.
