Welcome to the Water Rocket Forum, sponsored by The Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association.

The largest, most sophisticated and ground breaking group supporting you, the serious water rocket flyer! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the WRA2 has something for everyone.

A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

Hi Water Rocket Engineers,

I have been involved with water rockets since Science Olympiad in the 6th grade back in the late 90's and now help run water rocket programs at a local church summer group and have been looking to take it to the next level. I also am involved in a makerspace and want to bring that program to their summer curriculum too.

Looking to implement some of the items here and perhaps even take this further with regards to utilizing 3D printing heavily and also electronics.

Hope to get into this summer 2019.
