Seventh-grade technology students at West Babylon Junior High School constructed soda bottle rockets while learning about the history of rocketry from the ancient Chinese to modern day inter-planetary space rockets. Students learned the science behind how all objects, including rockets, move on Earth and in space. Using technology, students transformed a soda bottle into a rocket and tested its launching abilities in the field outside the school on June 12. Custom fins, guidance tubes and transition cones were designed by students to create their own individual rockets. After launch, the students used mathematical formulas to calculate the altitudes their rockets were able to reach.
