Bottle rockets and Boeing engineer a big day for kids in H.B.

Aspiring engineers got to build their own bottle rockets Saturday with guidance from Boeing Co. in Huntington Beach.

Participants brought an empty 2-litter bottle to build their bottle rocket with tips and design help from Boeing engineers. Discovery Cube provided a foam core, string, snow cone cups and plastic bags for parachutes.

Participants whose rockets had the longest "hang time" were awarded prizes.
