You are here Our Science & Maths Work Rockets

We designed and made air-fuelled rockets in school. We used three types of rocket: Rocket 1 with fins, Rocket 2 with no fins and Rocket 3 which was really Rocket 1 but we cut 4.5cm off the Rocket 1. After looking at the results we concluded that the rocket travelled furthest when it had fins. It travelled least when the fins were removed. By reducing the size of the rocket cylinder the distance it travelled increased because it was lighter.
