It’s Monday; if you’re lamenting another weekend past without a cool project then it’s time to add this inexpensive water rocket to your weekend project list.
Make magazine reader Cobbler built a water rocket based on the specs from the pages of Make vol. 5. In the above video he shows you how he built it as well as some test launches and then finally an on-board video of the flight in action. We challenge you to watch the video and not smile at how excited his young daughter is with the state of rocket launching in the cul-de-sac.
