Hello from Cal Poly

Post by benashby »

Hello,

I'm Ben from Cal Poly, San Luis Obipso in California. I'm in school to become an aerospace engineer, so I am very interested in rockets of all sorts. I've made a few single stage rockets, mostly for educational purposes. But I would like to test the limits of soda bottles and my own engineering ability to see how high and long I can fly.

Water rockets are a great way to experiment with basic aeronautics.

Welcome to the forum. It's great to have someone with your educational background getting involved in the sport. There's limitless possibilities with water rockets because so many ideas have yet to be tested.

Great to have to here!
