Isaac Newton's Laws of Motion

Still image for this video
To start with we focussed on the 3rd Law and created balloon rockets which when released, sent air in one direction and the rocket in the other. After our first flights, we thought more about the 1st and 2nd Laws and tried to increase the forces through the amount of air in the balloons and decrease the drag by using thinner, smaller rockets.
We learned the importance of trial and error in scientific development.
Here are some of our test runs.
