We first build a launch stand using 3D-printed for the launch pad and wooden parts for the stand of the launch. The first two attempts were a success since the rocket was fueled by sugar. The sugar rockets were mildly easy to make since it was basically caramel sugar. Only issues during launch were that the igniter had trouble connecting to the launch box. We eventually came up with the amount of ingredients we needed to make our custom-made ammonium perchlorate rocket fuel. Once we got our ingredients we needed to make our rocket fuel, we began setting up procedures and stir our ingredients into our custom-made rocket fuel.

The third attempt, which was a real test with the custom made ammonium perchlorate fuel, was not a success since the motor exploded but didn’t ignite the rocket fuel. We realized that the rocket fuel may have had air pockets and couldn’t ignite. We developed air lock PVC pipe to prevent air pockets to seep into the rocket fuel, and making several new procedures to mix the ingredients in different ways to get the best results from the rocket fuel once testing begins again. We’re also rebuilding the rocket stand by creating a larger 3d-printed launch stand.
