Learn to Build a Rocket in Five Days

Students discover the entire process that goes into designing rockets. In previous lessons in this unit, students learned how rockets work; now they learn what real-world decisions engineers must make when designing and building rockets. They learn about many important aspects such as supplies, ethics, deadlines and budgets. They also learn about the engineering design process and that the first design is almost never the final design. Re-engineering is a critical step in creating rockets.
