The research focuses on the effectiveness of classical dynamics teaching methods. A group working with a frontal teaching method was compared with two groups working with a learning activity-based method, one of which used a model rocket project to learn the subject. We investigated whether there were differences between the groups in the occurrence of conceptual changes related to dynamics and the impact on students' attitudes towards physics and their career choice plans.
