Picture of Water Rocket Project
This project was considered the final project and final grade in our physics class. Our project was to build a water rocket that will launch and keep a tennis ball in the air for 30 seconds. Our job was to build the rocket and keep the tennis ball in the air without it hitting the ground. Unfortunately it was a lot harder then it seemed. It took us about 4 trials before we were able to successfully keep the tennis ball in the air.

Step 1: Materials

Hi

Did you take any video of your launches? If so please post one or two. I'd love to see your chute deploy. My sons and I have launched several water rockets but never tried a parachute. We also have not attempted using 2 bottles together. Maybe this summer we will give it a go.
Good job on your project!
