Science alert

When we were science teachers Kev built a contraption involving copper pipes, valves and a pump that would launch rockets made from pieces of A4 paper rolled into tubes. This kit was always a favourite with the kids when teaching them about motion and pressure in physics. Well now we have a version of this apparatus at home, and it gets occasionally used for a bit of fun in the back garden. Harry and Kev built and launched paper rockets right over the mature trees in the back garden last summer, so I took a few photos!
The page again uses the Autumn leaves papers and as the words 'rock it' were in the kit i took scrapbooker license to use these for the title. All of the other embellishments were from the kit, some are stickers I raised on 3D foam, others are cut from the papers.

Kev is in Birmingham today working on his maths teachers Masters degree, so i have a day just to please myself with the two youngest (after doing the chores!) Need to get these done today as I'm off to another crop tomorrow.
