The Summer Introduction Programme 2015 welcomes about 1600 international students who follow an obligatory programme. Throughout a week of project work students design a water rocket and an academic poster, get familiarized with the Delft study method, and working in multicultural groups.

In our water rocket project we used recyclable materials like used bottle, clay, garbage bag to make the rocket. We used curved fins which provided stability to rocket during the flight. In order to make the nose heavy and stable we used the bottle caps filled with clay. A comparatively thicker material is used to make the parachute so that it can sustain the weight of the rocket. We learnt about teamwork, parallel workin. This project helps in understanding the importance of opinions and ideas of different people. It also helped in building patience when different problems and challenges appears.
