Murrumburrah High School


In this unit students learn about rocket science and design principles using mathematics and engineering problem solving techniques. Students are challenged to produce a rocket to outperform their peers. Students individually compile a portfolio of the information they collect to produce a safe and effective solution to the problem of obtaining the greatest height or flight time.
