Students compete in a design challenge to bid on a NASA rocket contract, complete with test launch! Plan, budget, build, and test a rocket to see which team has what it takes to win the contract. Students work cooperatively in teams to use math, engineering, and interpersonal skills to compete for the grand prize. Please note this is a 90-minute lab. Be sure to ask us about a special discount on our Dawn of the Space Age planetarium show to complement this lab!
