Step 6: Further Ideas
Don't limit yourself by what I have written here. Use this as a starter for a personal project:
> Build several rockets to different designs and compare them.
> Challenge friends to rocketry competitions, or enter properly organised events yourself. School laboratories lack carpets, and should be fully equipped with fire extinguishers and first-aid supplies, so make good venues for matchstick rocket ranges. All you need is a friendly science teacher. As many pubs lack carpets, they can be popular locations for matchstick rocket ranges as well. Just remember - alcohol and rockets don't mix, and alcoholic spirits are flammable!
> Are you a Beaver, Cub or Scout? Water and A-R rockets can count towards several different badges, depending how you approach it.
> What about a Science Fair? Imagine the judge's face when you turn up with a whole rocket range in an Altoid tin!
Above all, be safe and have fun - these are real rockets, with real potential for fun and education, as well as the real dangers involved.
