INVESTIGATE

1. How does the Design Cylce apply to a rocket scientist?

A rocket scientist has to use the design cycle a lot so that he doesn't hurt people.

2. How are rockets able to fly? (I have the answer for you in your instruction booklet.)

They use fuel that allow them to break the bonds of gravity.


3. Answer the Design Brief questions below:
