Rocket Launch

3, 2, 1 BLAST OFF! On Saturday, May 11, become a rocket engineer at Discovery Cube’s annual Rocket Launch! Design, build and launch your own water bottle rocket and participate in our longest “hang time” competition and become the 2019 Grand Rocketeer!

Bring an empty 2-liter bottle, your problem solving skills, imagination and transform that bottle into a rocket. Engineers from The Boeing Company will be on campus offering design and engineering tips to all participants.

The engineering process can start at home, research rocket design, and understand what wing shapes, a nose, weights, or other items may affect the design of your vehicle. Participants are encouraged to pre-build their 2-liter bottle rocket before launch day, and test it at the event. Rockets can be tested and adjusted on-site and launched repeatedly for the best performance. Water launchers are provided for all participants.

Supplies/Building Materials Provided by the Cube onsite:
• Foam core material for fins
• String
• Snow cone cups
• Tape
• Scissors
• Plastic bags for parachute materials
• Water and Water Launchers for testing

Take rocketry to the next level.
