Students select a flight mission (what they want the rocket to do) and design and construct a high-power paper rocket that will achieve the mission. They construct their rocket, predict its performance, fly the rocket, and file a post-flight mission report. Missions include achieving high altitude records, landing on a "planetary" target, carrying payloads, testing a rocket recovery system, and more.
