Students can build their own straw rockets and test them on the Straw Rocket Launcher. Just like early rocket pioneer Robert Goddard, they can conduct scientific experiments by varying the trajectory angle and launch energy. These rockets can travel up to 50 feet!
The Straw Rocket Launcher uses pneumatic force created by releasing a weighted drop rod in the cylinder to launch rockets. The force of the launch can be controlled by varying the release height of the rod.
The launcher features:
- Simple operation
- Adjustable trajectory angle with angle gauge
- Clear tube that displays internal parts
- Adjustable launch force
Building straw rockets is a fun, inexpensive activity and a great way to introduce students to rocketry. Recommended for use in a large, open indoor area such as a gymnasium.
Enough materials for 30 students to build four rockets each.
The Straw Rocket Launcher and the Straw Rocket video are included.
Requires scissors, ruler, and transparent tape, not included
