Blast OFF with Paper Rockets and Design Process Labs!!
The kids had a blast building paper rockets using just a sheet of copy paper, two index cards and tape. We used a piece of PVC pipe to wrap the paper around and form the barrel of the rocket, then just added a nose cone and fins. We did a bunch of design process labs testing the best barrel length, cone shape, fin location and type. It was a lot of fun and a great precursor to the upcoming Invention Convention! We launched them using the Air Hogs Stomp Launcher.
It was tons of fun! :)
