Report on the Results:  This Water Rockets launch event that opened World Space Week in Cluj County has been very appreciated in the community. Students and their physics teachers from 42 schools and high schools attended this event in the Unirii Square the main square of the city. We organized the event asound the hystorical statue in the Unirii Square where each school and high school presented to peoples walking or passing by their experiments, models, projects and posters. A teacher jury evaluated each category and at the end gave prizes. The main pont of this activity has been the water rackets launch - more then a hundred - that polarised the people to join us. There have been different kind of launching systems and the fuel have been ecological (only water). The event have been broadcasted on 4 TV stations (local, regional and national) and a goup of teachers and students have been invited at a live show about the event at a regional TV station. Mass media covered also the event next two, three days. Also, a group of upper secondary school students aplied a questionnaire to the public in the Unirii Square: passing by peoples, groups of tourists, peoples in the shops and institutions nearby. It was an activity that provided the students the opportunity to learn about space and about the way the adult persons wich lived those moments are remembering now their emotions and ideas. Also, peoples apreciated this kind of activities with students in community.
