Students launch homemade water rockets

Blue, cloudless skies made an impressive canopy over Liberty on Oct. 31 as students who are enrolled in the Physics of Toys took turns launching homemade water rockets.

Along with big smiles and high-fives from the participants, there was a lot of applause coming from those observing the blast-off process.

The rocket project promotes the study of engineering concepts including inertia, gravity, air resistance, acceleration, momentum, free fall calculations, ballistics and more.
