DESCRIPTION

Study Newton's laws of motion as you build rockets that soar up to 150 feet! This high-quality launcher uses water and air pressure (from a bicycle air pump, not included) to launch plastic soda pop bottles. Includes instructions with ideas for experiments, such as making an altimeter and testing what happens when water and air pressure amounts are varied. This set does not come with a wooden stand as pictured; metal prongs at the bottom of the launcher are designed to stick it into the ground to secure the launcher. Adult supervision required.

Want to use this kit for a science fair project? See our experiment ideas below to get you started.

You provide a soda bottle, air pump, tire pressure gauge, and other household items. We also recommend protective safety goggles.

Science Fair Project Ideas:

  • Experiment with different levels of air and water pressure to find what makes the rocket go the highest.
  • Try launching the rocket on days with different weather conditions to see how temperature, wind speed, and outside air pressure change how high it goes.
