We used an inspiration board to help us build the rocket. I’m going to tell you how we made the nose cone. First, we got paper and cut out a circle. We cut halfway through the circle and pulled the two corners to make a cone shape.
Now I’m going to tell you how we made the body. We got a PVC pipe and paper. Then we wrapped the paper around the PVC pipe. Then we slid out the PVC pipe and taped the paper to make a tube.
Now I’m going to tell you how we made the fins. We looked online for rocket fins and we found one that we liked. We cut it out on cardboard.
We picked a thick PVC pipe so it can carry more air and go higher and a pointy nose cone so it cuts through the air better.
Our first launch did not go well because we used too much tape. Another reason is we made the rocket too tall.
