#20 - Intermediate Range Recon Probe Trials & MockUps:> (stomp rocket competetion)

Use the launch system @ your table, cellophane or masking tape, protractor to determine launch angle, and a known mass (use scales) of clay "payload" NEVER ANYTHING POINTY - NO OTHER MATERIALS - INTERNET RESEARCH AND INFORMATION SHARING ENCOURAGED!

Your team MUST DOCUMENT ALL DESIGN DETAILS ON A ELECTRONIC DOCUMENT FOR CREDIT - (design & construction details, payload mass, launch angle.)

Stomp on the 2L bottle with ACROSS THE MIDDLE, WITH ONE FOOT ONLY (foot @ right angle to the length of the bottle - lengthwise ruins the bottle quickly, and you only get one bottle exchange!)

You must get from the back nearest seam to the building of the nearest sidewalk to beyond the edge of the furthest sidewalk for group credit. First team to make the goal gets double credit:> Sharing elements of success is encouraged with an additional full credit (3x overall:>).
