Alex Taraburca, a 7th grade student in the Math and Science Academy, launches his water powered bottle rocket into the air at Green River Park on Monday after his partner pumped enough pressure into the half full bottle.  The students have been studing Newtons laws as applied to pressure and force.  They also found the height of the rockets, almost 100 feet, by triangulated the angle vs distance from launch pad.

In this feature photo, Alex Taraburca, a seventh-grade student in the Greenfield Math and Science Academy, launches his water-powered bottle rocket into the air at Green River Park on Monday. His partner first had to pump enough pressure into the half-full bottle. The students have been studying Newton’s laws as applied to pressure and force. They also found the height of the rockets, almost 100 feet, by triangulating the angle versus distance from launch pad. (Recorder/Paul Franz)
