Go here for the Rocket Simulator. For best results, use Internet Explorer. You will need to have the latest version of Java installed, and you may need to set the simulator up as a security exception by doing the following:

  • Open Configure Java
  • Click the Security tab.
  • Click "Edit Site List..."
  • Click "add" and copy the address for the rocket simulator. Click OK twice and try loading the simulator again.

If all else fails, come to my classroom before or after school and use my computers to complete the activity.

3. Follow the instructions on this page to make your air rocket.

4. Complete the notes for the water rocket.
