Blast into physics at the Hiller Aviation Museum Water Rocket Rally!
Ideal for elementary-aged students (grades K-5), participants learn about Newton’s Third Law and examine a real rocket designed and built by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Then, everyone designs, constructs, and launches a water rocket made from a recycled soda bottle!
Following the water rocket launch, participants may explore the Hiller Aviation Museum’s collection of some fifty different air and spacecraft.
There is no fee to participate, but each person wishing to launch a rocket should bring a clean, recycled 1- or 2-liter soda bottle (no water bottles please). New, empty soda bottles will be available in the museum’s Gift Shop on the day of the event for a nominal fee for those unable to bring a suitable bottle.
