Discussions start on who's going to be the observer, launcher, and meter stick holder:

Step 1:  Fill the rocket halfway through with water.

Steps 2 and 3: Position the rocket close to the ground, vertically. The Put two meter sticks on top of each other to measure.

Step 4:  Pump the rocket 6 times (to start with).

Step 5: Pull the trigger on the rocket and launch it vertically.

Step 6: Observe and estimate how high the rocket went up.


Steps 7 and 8: Do it over and over again going from 6 to 10 to 14 to 18 (etc.)
