Rocket Design

Dennis Kuma and Andre Morra are experimenting with rocket designs. They must build and launch a series of rockets and measure how well they fly. Careful measurements of the rocket parts, consistent construction techniques are just the beginning. When they launch their rockets, they will have to determine how high they fly using triangulation techniques and trigonometry.

After the flight, the scientist/engineers must record the telemetry results for later analysis.
