Get S.E.T.

How Much Energy Does it Take to Launch a Rocket into Orbit?

Le Grand High School has a student population of predominantly low-income minorities who are often unable to experience technology-based activities in their curriculum. The Get S.E.T. Engineering Service Learning team partnered with the Le Grand High School physics department to develop and implement a physics-based lab that teaches acceleration, conservation of energy, and engineering design with a highly interactive water rocket project. This project allows students to build and test rockets to pique their interest in engineering and design. The Water Rocket project was tested, assessed and delivered in March of 2020.
