MT ARARAT LAUNCHES PAPER ROCKETS ON A BREEZY DAY


Twenty-one students from Mt Ararat Middle School in Topsham, Maine made paper rockets that really flew very high, but the breeze made the actual heights inaccurate.
We wanted to see if 1 penny or two would go higher. Unfortunately, the varying breeze made
the measurements inaccurate.

INSTRUCTABLES FOUR ROCKET CLASS LESSONS

Instructables offers an excellent 4 class session including theory and very practical instructions on rocketry from stomp rockets to engine rockets. To quote them:

This class is aimed at the budding rocket enthusiast, and aims to keep things accessible by using mostly household items to create our own rockets. The class culminates with making and launching a solid fuel rocket, capable of achieving altitudes that would make any astronaut dizzy.

Strap in, Cadet, we're about to shoot for the stars!
