        Design a Liquid Fuel Rocket Engine

        In this interactive activity adapted from NASA, design and launch a liquid fuel rocket. Learn the science behind how rocket engines produce thrust, and investigate how various aspects of a liquid fuel rocket engine—the oxidizer-to-fuel ratio, the pump size, the nozzle throat diameter, and the nozzle exit diameter—affect whether the rocket will successfully launch. The activity also features a brief history of liquid rockets and an image gallery of American rockets.

        This media asset was adapted from The Beginner's Guide to Rockets: "RocketThrust Simulator"/NASA/GRC.
