Team Building and Rocket Launching
On Sept. 30, the Space Foundation led a team-building exercise for Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance.
The participants gathered in the Area 51 section of the Space Foundation's Discovery Center, where they learned the basic principles of rocketry. They formed groups and designed and constructed their own water rockets out of 2-liter plastic bottles, then used compressed air to propel them.
