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.

Has anyone noticed that this forum has a time scheme like the school related fora? It is most active during the school year (its activity starts earlier than most others, tough) and in the summer vacation there were almost no post. I would actually think that a lot of you guys are hobbyists and thus only work in the vacation period...
Come to think of it, does anyone does dis for his work (not as students in class or as hobbyist)

People build, fly and experiment while the weather is nice, then talk about it during the winter. It just coincides with the school year. Yes we do also get a lot of drive by traffic coinciding with the times of the year that schools do their "rocketry" in physics class but that is not unexpected.

I assume that other educators include links to various water rocket resources in the information that they provide to their students. I'm sure they can find it themselves too, but I like to give links to places with helpful information and people.

Well, in my hometown there's only two seasons... I fly rockets AYR (only delayed by rain) Well basically I'd be much more active during the vacation days (April-May) because much more time is in my hand.

Another thing, though. This forum reminds me of Facebook and reddit fused together.
