Radical Rockets

Blast off with Newton and explore his Three Laws of Motion through paper rocketry activities. Investigate aerodynamics while building and launching paper rockets with specially design, high-powered air launchers. Guaranteed to be a BLAST!

> Subjects: States of Matter, Newton’s Laws of Motion, Physics of Earth & Space, Engineering design process

Paper Rockets requires a large space (outdoors or indoors) for spectacular launches that are always a hit and has wide appeal to a range of grade levels. We start with our Force and Motion presentation with demonstrations to illustrate how and why rockets fly, and explain Newton’s Laws of Motion. All the children will then make their own paper rocket and shoot it up to 100 ft. high with our high powered air launchers! The rocket they make is their take-home souvenir from this fun and educational experience.

>  Juniors & Weeblos (Grades 4-5)
>  Single Session (90 min) allows scouts to build and test their rocket, and compare their results with their peers
>  Extended Session (90+ min) allows scouts to build, test, record data, measure & change variables, and more
>  Can be done at iSPACE or at your location
