Nandana's Project

Solid propellant rocket:

The best way to ignite the young minds is by letting them ignite a rocket made by their own hands. The solid propellant rocket is an advanced activity encased in a small pack. It looks pretty simple yet the one who tries to make it will understand the difficulties that lie within. Nevertheless, our students have dared to make this activity. In this process they understood the importance of failure because they were able to improve their model by correcting their mistakes. They apply the knowledge gained in Rocket Science to make it fly. Finally, when the rocket flies their happiness and confidence has no bounds. Science related expertise gained through this activity are: the meaning and importance of Chemical energy, Trajectory, Velocity, Distance, Heat, Solid fuel, Nozzle design. On top of all they get patience, determination and focus.
