We are exploring Newton’s Laws of Physics in science class. Today we experimented with rockets, using a plastic pop bottle, isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and a match. Students made predictions and observations and we discussed what various laws of motion were at play in this reaction.
During Orientation students worked together to build a contraption to carry the teacher’s “Precious Cargo.” They had to throw the cargo off the garden balcony in a dramatic end of day show. The engineering creations were quite creative, though only a few survived the fall. Check out the awesome slow motion videos!
