Blast off at Discovery Cube’s annual Rocket Launch! Located on campus at the Boeing Company in Huntington Beach, this event is full of hands-on activities for all ages and includes a competition where you’ll design, build and launch your own 2-liter bottle rocket with pressurized air and water. Rockets with the longest “hang time” will be awarded prizes.
Need some advice on how to build the best bottle rocket? Check out the video below to get real engineering tips on making your rocket fly high, deploy a parachute, and gracefully fall back to Earth! A huge thanks to The Boeing Company for funding the production of this video and the teacher professional development program that also accompanies this video, along with hosting the Rocket Launch at their Huntington Beach campus.
