TAKE OFF AND TAKE FLIGHT
Launch into the world of flight with Take Off & Take Flight Bottle Rock Physics! This learning experience will include a video demonstration of a bottle rocket design and launch that can be tried at home. We also have PowerPoint with some basic physics concepts described and a photo submission survey for sharing the experience. Bottle rockets are a great way to learn about chemical reactions, forces, and energy.
WHO: Utah Air Force-connected youth who just completed 3rd - 6th grades
WHEN: Names of challenge participants will be drawn at the end of the 2020-2021 school year.
WHAT: A virtual video demonstration, accompanied by an physics concepts presentation and a "Do & Snap a Pic" challenge which will be submitted here.
WHERE: Watch this video online
HOW: Watch the video. Click on the right directional arrow to advance through the video. Do the bottle rockets experiment. An adult can help you with the experiment and walk youth through the physics concepts using the PowerPoint. Fill out the survey and share pics to be entered into the drawing for a STEM kit.
COST: Free, thanks to 4-H Military Partnerships Program Grant Funding.
The Physics Concepts PowerPoint can be found here.
