SolidWorks and Bottle Rockets

Bottle_1As part of a school water rocket program, the students will be challenged to design a pop bottle piece that will be useful in the construction of a water rocket. In order to complete their task, basic measurement will be used as well as the technical method in the development of their design.  The student will also have to become familiar with basic engineering principles in the process.  Contributed by Rick Daugherty, West Virginia
