Explore the factors that influence rocket flight. Students will design, build and test rocket performance by varying fin shape, size, and number, rocket weight, length and nose cone shape. This STEM based lab demonstrates the application of scientific theory and concepts. And best of all, the air powered rockets require no rocket engines. Students can economically perform multiple tests on their design. Rockets travel up to 60 feet in height depending on design.
This system can also be used to test any model rocket that utilizes an ESTES® B-20 body tube (0.75 in. diameter). This saves money because you are not wasting expensive rocket engines.
Enough supplies for 20 students including: launcher, body tubes, balsa wood, plastic nose cones, foam nose cone fabrication materials and more. Requires air compressor, see 500027.
