Parachutes are REQUIRED for all water rockets this year, however the parachute does NOT have to successfully deploy to be classified as a successful launch.
Water rockets must be 1 meter or less in total height.
Coke brand bottles fit launcher most easily
Only 1 launch per team this year. An official pneumatic launcher with the pressure and launch buttons will be used. In addition:
1. Kids should pack chute before they come (no parent help allowed)
2. Kids can pressurize and launch own rocket
3. During or after pressurizing, only event supervisors can approach the rocket (safety issue).
4. Straws aren't necessary for launching
5. Goggles will be provided
