Nose Cone Experts

Views: 1375

Student teams will construct predesigned card stock nose cones from patterns provided in the Adventures In Rocket Science Activity Guide. The wind tunnel simulation is one of the most basic and can be easily modified to create improved airflow, etc. Drag is measured here as a result of the differing distances the rocket body travels in opposition to the airflow. See page 90 of the guide.
