Eighth-grade science teacher Mr. Dave Bronson launches a water rocket into the sky as part of a lesson on terminal velocity and gravity. Students built the rockets from recycled materials and then measured for height and velocity of impact.

Mr. Dave Bronson is up to his usual tricks in eighth grade science. Recently, he blasted off water rockets to finish a lesson on terminal velocity and gravity. Students created the rockets out of recycled materials, including pop bottles, folders, and cardboard boxes, and then Mr. Bronson hooked the rockets up for launch. Students then used the time of the rocket launch to measure for height (apex) and velocity of impact. The overall best rocket was constructed by Kyle S. and Cameron P. Their masterpiece traveled 416 feet in the air and hit with a velocity of around 145 miles per hour. The second place rocket was constructed by Paxton M. and Slater C. And rounding out the top three were Ana F. and Audrey A. Great work everyone!!
