5...4...3...2...1... It's that time of year again!
Using an empty 2L soda bottle Scouts will build and launch a rocket.
The idea is for the boys to do most of the work. If parents want to build their own, we'll have time to put them to a test. Bonus points for Scouts that add a parachute to their rocket.
For complete instructions, see the 98_waterbottlerocket.pdf
. The rocket will need a little weight added to the nose to prevent it from spinning out of control during flight. There are a lot of Bottle Rocket
youtube videos to assist.
WARNING: DO NOT CUT ANY PART OF THE 2L BOTTLE THAT WILL BE PRESSURIZED. THIS WILL RESULT IN THE ROCKET BLOWING UP DURING LAUNCH.
Where: Independence Middle School
When: 7/21 from 5:50 - 8:00 (launches start at 6:00)
What to expect: Soaked Scouts
Bring: A complete rocket and a friends that you think might want to join the Pack. Water cannons are also allowed; however, NO water "GUNS". GUNS have triggers, CANNONS push and pull in order to squirt water. WATER GUNS are not permitted at Pack events; however, water CANNONS are strongly encouraged..
Tips: The rocket needs to have a little weight added to the top of it in order to prevent it from flipping and spiraling out of control during launch.
