"We've eliminated the security problem with using rocket engines and the students went wild over the 'target practice' activity. The rockets cost nearly nothing and the students can build several and evaluate the performance of their various designs." - Len Armstrong
"Since the Paper Rocket System requires few materials, students are able to design, experiment and improve performance through repeated trial flights." - Mark Broderich, J.F.K. Middle School, Woburn, MA
