About

In this fun science activity, kids will use an air-powered rocket launcher made of PVC piping to send hand crafted paper rockets soaring into the sky. This activity addresses concepts in science such as motion and forces, transfer of energy, engineering design, measurement, as well as invention and innovation. Using the air-powered rocket launcher, the kids will see their hand-made paper rockets, made from a variety of papers with differing weights, sent into the sky at various distances. Using this activity, kids will learn about forces such as pressure and gravity and their impact on objects made of different weighted material. There are many ways of creating an air powered paper rocket launcher PVC manifold and so it should be noted that the materials listed and instructions provided for creating the manifold are for building a stomp bottle paper rocket launcher.
