How do Rockets Launch?

Good For:
Sometimes we say that things can’t be as difficult as rocket science, but it turns out that the principle behind rockets is one that we see in so many things we do in our lives! We will explore the principle that makes rockets launch, and also put it into action with a fun model rocket experiment!

Sishir Mahavadi, a Lexington High School freshman, created this as a special project.

    Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive, and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

    For the 2021 Festival, we will host a month-long celebration of STEAM in our community with an overarching theme of gratitude and appreciation. During the month of April 2021, we will showcase creative digital and virtual entries from our rich STEAM community.
